Mike Brearley, the former England captain would be delivering the Don Bradman oration this year. Brearley is one of the finest captains the game has seen and he analyses cricket in a cerebral manner. It would be great to hear from him as he has said he would touch up on topics not spoken about a lot.

In recent times, there is a lot of talk about the Decision Review System (DRS), T20 cricket etc. However, Brearley wants to talk about what it means to play for England against Australia. He would also speak about the importance of this series to the two teams and why sport in general plays a huge role in one's life.

Brearley's oration would come when Ashes fever would be gripping Australia. Already, the fans from both sides are happy to see the back to back Ashes.
