Bradman's missing 4 runs found?

MCG pays tribute to Bradman the day he passed away.


A good captain must be a fighter; confident but not arrogant, firm but not obstinate; able to take criticism without letting it unduly disturb him, for he is sure to get it -- and unfairly, too.
-- Bradman, on captaincy

I'm very sorry I made a duck. I'd have been glad if I'd made those four extra runs to have an average of 100. I didn't know it at the time and I don't think the Englishmen knew it either. I think if they had known it they may have been generous enough to let me get four.
-- Bradman, on his last innings

The greatest partnership of my life.
-- Bradman, on on his 65-year marriage to wife, Jessie

Meeting Sir Donald was the greatest day of my life.
-- Sachin Tendulkar
