Google Doodle celebrates Don Bradman’s 110th birthday.

Google is celebrating the 110th birth anniversary of former Australian cricketer Sir Donald Bradman, widely considered the most prolific batsman in the history of Test cricket, with a doodle.

Bradman made his debut for Australia at the age of 20 against England in 1928. Interestingly, he also played his last Test against the same opponent, just before turning 40, in 1948.
