Sir Donald Bradman saw all but a few of the 20th century's greatest cricketers play the game. Apart from being cricket's most successful player and captain, Bradman built a reputation over five decades as the game's most knowledgable and incisive selector. He was second to none in judging a cricketer's capacities and talents, and had a deep comprehension of the game. These factors put Bradman in a unique position to make the most informed judgement on the composition of the world's all-time best cricket team. "Bradman's Best" reveals Sir Donald Bradman's all-time best team from all cricket playing nations since the first Test was played in 1877. In exclusive interviews and correspondence with his biographer, Roland Perry, over six years, Bradman shared his thoughts on the world's best cricketers, his greatest ever team and why he chose its illustrious members. The Don's one proviso was that his selection only be made public after his death to spare him the inevitable publicity and controversy that such a book would stir-up, and allow him to enjoy a period of rest and privacy in his last years.
As well as Bradman's compelling revelations and thoughts on cricket's most celebrated exponents and the way the game had developed over the decades, this long-awaited book also contains engrossing portraits of his selections, who forever will be known as Bradman's Best.
