Ashes: The Don bows out at the Oval in 1948

One of the strongest Test sides ever seen, Australia's 'Invincibles' regained the Ashes with a thumping 4-0 win. Despite their dominance, the series is best remembered for Don Bradman's final Test innings, a second-ball duck at the Oval.

Bradman famously needed only four runs in his last innings to finish his career with a Test average in excess of 100 runs. While he failed in that respect, during his career he still amassed 5,028 runs against England in Ashes Tests, including 19 centuries.
