Sir Donald Bradman (1908-2001)
New South Wales, South Australia
Bradman stands a man apart in the world of cricket and is the first name on any all-time team sheet.
Talk in sport often gravitates towards lengthy discussions about the best, but in cricket the focus is on second.
Bradman was the most prodigious run-scorer ever and although his average against England was lower than his legendary life-time mark of 99.94, it still exceeds all other batsmen.
In a career spanning 20 years, "The Don" scored 117 centuries, a rate of better than one every three innings.
He made his debut against England in Brisbane in 1928-29 in only his 10th first-class match.
Bradman was dropped after that match, but following a first century on his return he never looked back and records tumbled wherever he went.
And as captain he never lost a series against England, culminating with the "1948 Invincibles" who finished their tour, and Bradman's last, unbeaten.
