Bowral: Jan 8, 2012
The Bradman Museum in Bowral is planning to install a statue of Sachin Tendulkar on its lawn, alongside Aussie legend, Sir Don Bradman.
According to TOI, the museum, which has evolved into the International Cricket Hall of Fame has six galleries. The first one is called 'The Game' that explains what cricket is about, both the rules and its intangible 'spirit'.
One can even try their hand at different batting strokes and bowling techniques and position players on an interactive fielding table to see how strategy can win or lose a game.
There are other galleries that exhibit the game through the eras, cricketing greats, and also have a theater that screens highlights from famous Test matches and an exhibit dedicated to the infamous bodyline series.
For most visitors, though, the highlight is the new Bradman Gallery, dedicated to his life and cricketing career, with exhibits that not only cover his 'wizardry with the willow' but also examine the social reasons he became a national icon.
It's an outstanding collection of memorabilia, with bats, balls, blazers, handwritten letters, photographs and slides.
