When Bradman got it wrong

Before the 1956 Old Trafford Test started, Jim Laker was in the pavilion when Sir Don Bradman returned from inspecting it.

"What do you think of the track?", asked Laker.

"It's nice and flat, isn't it?", told Bradman. He then added, " It's just what our fellows have been looking for. They will get a packet of runs out there."

Jim Laker took 19-90 in that match.
