A humour piece in a newspaper about Don Bradman scoring a duck.
Don Bradman is revered as the best-ever batsman to have played cricket. Career average of 99.94 and First Class average of 95.14 shows his greatness. In a span of 20 years, Bradman notched up one record after the other. But the legend too had a little share of disappointments. In this gallery we recount the various ducks scored by Bradman. He has total of 16 First Class ducks to his name and seven of them came in Tests. Unfortunately Bradman is remembered for the infamous duck at The Oval in his last test bowled by a googly from Eric Hollies and thereby missing out on ending his career with an average of 100.
Another famous duck from Bradman was in the Bodyline series of 1932-33. In the second Test at Melbourne, Bill Bowes fooled the batsman by convincing Bradman that a short delivery was round the corner and then bowled him with a length delivery.
