Sir Donald Bradman is one of Australia's greatest sportsmen. His cricket career spanned 20 years. Although he was born in New South Wales and spent his childhood there, he spent his adult years in South Australia. He made his debut into first-class cricket at the Adelaide Oval when he was 19. Widely acclaimed as the best batsman ever, he accrued a batting average of 99.4 runs.
This monument to 'The Don' is near the front of the Adelaide Oval. In the background is St Peter's Cathedral where a memorial service was held in March 2001, one month after his death at the age of 92.
