Anniversary of Sir Donald Bradman’s Passing

More than twenty years since the passing of Sir Donald Bradman, his legacy –  as batsman, cricket administrator and cultural icon more generally – remains as strong as ever. With an unrivalled record inside the boundary rope that need not be looked up so much as looked up to, Bradman’s greatness has not, and will never fade.

Always a fearless and fervent advocate for cricket, Bradman maintained an enduring relationship with the game following his on-field retirement. In roles as chairman of the Australian Cricket Board, selector, journalist and author, Sir Donald keenly pursued a vision that would ensure, “cricket continue to flourish and spread its wings,” firmly believing “the world can only be richer for it.” A vision that continues to inspire, it is heartening to see cricket play an important role as a unifying force for countries and cultures right around the world.

Two decades on, and in many ways, the game is unrecognisable from the one he left behind on the 25th February 2001. Transition and evolution notwithstanding, Sir Donald Bradman’s indelible impact on the game he loved remains. The cricketing community continues to hold firm on his vision and indeed, the world is richer for it.

Sir Donald Bradman passed away twenty-one-years ago on the 25th February 2001. His ashes are scattered alongside Lady Jesse Bradman, in the courtyard at the Bradman Museum, overlooking Bradman Oval.
