He didn't achieve this feat in first-class cricket but in a match that occurred at Blackheath, in the Blue Mountains, on November 2nd (or sometime in December, depending on which source you believe). The match was between a side representing Blackheath and a team from Lithgow. Bradman had been invited to play for Blackheath along with another Test player, Wendell Bill.
Bradman scored 256 which included a hundred scored in three consecutive 8-ball overs. In the three overs, he scored 10 sixes, 9 fours, a two and 2 singles. From another source, the full score for the three overs -
1st Over; 66424461 (33)
2nd Over 64466464 (40)
3rd Over 16611446 (27) It seems 2 of the singles were made by Wendell Bill.
Wendell Bill scored a couple of singles in the third over to return the batting to the Don.
[A source I read over fifty years ago attributed all the runs to Bradman with him retaining the batting at the end of the second over with a five - presumably a single and four overthrows. However, that was a long time ago and the source - the Wizard comic - may not be acceptable even if my memory hasn't tricked me]
- the first report appears most credible to me - when observing the scoreboard and who would have been on the 'strike end' during the middle of the 3rd over and, also, its probable commencement - Denidowi
you need 5 innings
Either One Inning, or One putout or assist. Hope that helped!
Yes. Each team gets five turns at bat, so the game can end after four and a half innings if the home team has the lead (and therefore does not need its final turn).
The main one was his career average. He averaged 99.94 at a time when batting was more difficult than today. In the modern era, batsmen have more protection and pitches are flat and even. Bradman played on uncovered pitches which were at the mercy of the weather at all times, making them unpredictable, and he had little protection when one did rear up at him off a length. Bradman averaged 99.94 runs per innings. Since then, only three players have averaged more than 60, and none of them more than 61. That is what makes him so remarkable. No matter what people say about comparing eras, you can compare them relatively, and Bradman was clearly twice as good as anybody else in his era. Tendulkar, Ponting and co are all incredible batsmen, but they are only fractionally ahead of the rest of the world, statistically. Bradman was a mile away from anyone. Now, they didn't play as much cricket back then, so obviously his mark of 7996 career runs has been surpassed, but everyone who has done it has taken more than twice as long as Bradman to get there. Statistically, he is the greatest sportsman of all time. To put it in perspective, a basketballer would need a career average of 43.0 ppg to dominate a sport like Bradman did, and nobody has averaged more than 30.1.
There's three outs per inning. In a nine inning game there would be 27 outs each team would need to record.
The game goes into extra innings, beginning with the 10th inning and continues, playing full innings until the score is no longer tied. Sometimes the game will need to be post-phoned on account of time restraints, usually to be resumed the next day/night.
For an individual team, 162 games X 9 innings per game = 1,458. That's assuming all games last a full nine innings, which is not always the case. A game CAN be called "complete" at any point after the end of the 5th inning, provided both teams have an equal number of offensive innings, if weather conditions prohibit the continuation of play. I have no idea how often this happens. Also, if the home team is leading in the middle of the ninth inning (or the middle of the 5th-8th if weather forces a stop in play), there is no need to play the bottom half of the inning, and the game is considered complete. And since the home team has a slight advantage in a game, I would say about half of all games end this way. So, even without the 5- to 8-inning weather games, about half of all games end at 8.5 innings. For all teams combined: There are 30 teams, each of which plays 1,458 innings, but since each game involves 2 teams, you have to divide that by 2. 21,870 innings. Again, that doesn't allow for games called at 5, 6, 7, 8, or 8.5 innings. Also, sometimes one or more additional games are required at the end of the regular season to break divisional or wildcard race ties. These are not included. Nor, for that matter, are playoff games and world series games.
The follow on is when the team batting second is forced to bat again immediately after completing their first turn at bat. This may be enforced at the option of the fielding side if the team batting second fail to get within 200 runs of the 1st innings score. Note the fielding side can choose to bat as normal is they wish to. The team batting first may then bat again in the forth innings if the need to. An example Team A 450 (1st innings) Team B 220 (2nd innings) Team B following on 230 behind 320 (3rd innings) Team A 91/2 wins by 8 wickets (4th innings)
