Cricketing legends Bob Simpson and Richard Hadlee will be honoured at the annual Bradman Foundation Gala Dinner Wednesday night at the Sydney Cricket Ground.


Simpson has an unique place in Australian cricket — as a player, captain, selector and coach in a career that spans over five decades.


Simpson is also one of only 21 players to have scored a triple Test century, the Daily Telegraph reported.


As an opening bowler, New Zealand legendary all-rounder Hadlee’s clinical stump to stump line, high flowing action, superb follow through, and unwavering concentration defined his play.


In contrast, his batting depended not on a carefully developed technique, but on a brilliant eye and natural timing. (IANS)
