It is very evident that Sir Donald Bradman is called the greatest ever batsman to have played the sport. Bradman made his debut against England in 1928 and the bats and the equipments he used in his debut match along with his memorabilia will be showcased at the historic Victoria Memorial Hall, Kolkata early next year (2015).

It is likely that Bradman’s diaries, clothes and letters too will be showcased. When contacted Mr. Shakil Ahamed, Administrative Officer of the Hall regarding the date, he said that the exact dates are yet to be finalised.

The event is organised along with the Don Bradman Foundation, and will exhibit all items linked to Don’s professional and personal innings.

“The exhibition will be held in 2015 and a great deal of attention will be paid to maintaining the precious” Ahmed said. He went went on to add that a team of the Bradman Foundation visited the VM Hall while searching for locations and the final details will be released in few days’ time.

The 93 year old historical monument provides a stunning backdrop for hosting various exhibitions including the 2014 Kolkata Literary Meet. The show is expected to travel through Mumbai, Bangalore and Delhi.

Bradman, who had played a total of 52 test matches with a record of 6996 runs at an astonishing average of 99.94 was unfortunate not to have played international cricket on Indian soil, which might be a bit unfortunate for the Indian fans as well.
