Young Don Bradman

Newspaper reports of a 17 year old Don Bradman impressing on the cricket field were appearing regularly in 1926.  By 1 February 1928, he was playing for New South Wales and had well and truly been discovered as an emerging talent with the bat.  In 1936, cartoonists enjoyed the pain he was causing fielders, bowlers and record keepers.  No batsman before or since matched his test batting average of 99.94.
