Even though more than 70 years have passed since his retirement, and two decades have passed since his death, Sir Don Bradman continues to generate a sense of awe in the world of cricket. In his illustrious career that lasted 52 Tests, the Australian batting legend scored close to 7000 runs.

But then, one number that allows Bradman to occupy an exalted pedestal is his Test batting average. The Australian legend averages a whopping 99.94 in Test cricket, and this is a feat that has no equal.

Bradman also plundered 29 hundreds, 12 double hundreds, and 2 triple hundreds in his illustrious career. And today, the cricketing world is celebrating his 113th birth anniversary.
