    Sir Donald Bradman, the world's greatest ever cricketer and Australia's greatest sportsman. He held a batting average of 99.94 (total runs divided by times out) which is by far and away one of those rare records that will NEVER be broken.
    The next best batting average, at the end of a career is 60.97, almost 40 runs per innings below Bradman.

    And his statistics might be the most dominate in any sport in history, consider this, to compare Bradmans average in Cricket consider what a baseballer and basketballer would need to do -

    Don't think you could find one controversy about Bradman.
