Cricket Scenes with Don Bradman I 1948

2 mins United Kingdom

Considered by many to be the greatest batsman of all time, Don Bradman appears in this short film being escorted onto the pitch with police trying to control the huge crowds of fans. The location is possibly the Sussex County Cricket Ground in Hove. Bradman is then seen batting until he is bowled out.
