Famous quotes by Donald Bradman

Some of famous quotes from the Australian cricketer and the Cricket Legend Sir Donald Bradman

"I was never coached; I was never told how to hold a bat."

"If there is a threat to the game of cricket, that threat lies in the first class arena. One day cricket, especially day-night cricket, is here to stay."

Some of his sayings from his last interview in 1996

"Many cricketers who had more ability than I had, Why they didn't make more runs than I did, I don't know"

"Undoubtedly the best all-round cricketer I've ever set eyes on"
~ Sir Donald Bradman on West Indies' Gary Sobers

"The best thing that's happened to the game for many years"
~ Sir Donald Bradman on Australian leg-spinner Shane Warne

"Every ball went exactly where I wanted it to go until the ball that got me out"
~ On his 254 scored at Lord's

"I'm very sorry I made a duck, I'd have been glad if I'd made those four extra runs to have an average of 100. I didn't know it at the time and I don't think the Englishmen knew it either. I think if they had known it they may have been generous enough to let me get four"

"Of course that's rubbish. I was certainly emotional, but I wasn't that bad. But I was very sad walking out. I felt I'd let the people down"
~ Denying the question that he got out because of tears in his eyes

"Despite recent sad developments, cricket will survive and remain our most noble game and I shall always remain proud of the part I played in its history and development"
~ Bradman on match- fixing

"A good captain must be a fighter; confident but not arrogant, firm but not obstinate; able to take criticism without letting it unduly disturb him, for he is sure to get it - and unfairly, too,"
