Bradman The Great

In 1948, the invincible Australians scored 721 runs in a day against Essex.

Their captain Don Bradman scored a fair amount of them. 

During that innings, the first three balls of one over were pitched on a good-length on off-stump. Bradman smote them all past cover-point to the boundary.

The Essex wicket-keeper humorously asked him, "Can't you hit them anywhere else?"

Bramdna picked up the next three, all pitched on the same spot, and pulled them to the mid-wicket boundary.

"How's that?", he turned around and asked the wicket-keeper.
