If they decide to bring them back, Australia's reputation in world cricket will take a beating, so I won't support the move. Australia have the bowlers, let them win it for the team," Harvey, who was part of <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/don-bradman/">Don Bradman</a> s 1948 Invincibles team (the team were given the name after they did not lose a single match on their England tour that year), told <em>MID-DAY</em> on Sunday. <p></p> <p></p>Quizzed further if Bradman would give the green signal to introduce Smith, Warner and Bancroft into the side before their ban ends, Hervey added: "I don't know but he was a very strict disciplinarian. I suppose he would not have liked the ban to be reduced." <p></p> <p></p>Meanwhile, Harvey said that he s eagerly awaiting to see how a rattled Australia fair in the marquee <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/india-vs-australia-2018">Test series against India</a> which begins with the first Test on December 6. "If I don't come, I will surely watch the match on TV," he said.
