More than a 100 because if he could score that much on wet & uncovered pitches without any protection equipment then he would have loved the present scenario when their are field restrictions which makes it a batsman's game!!

It would be lower than his average during his prime......

In Don's era u faced a LOT more intimidation style fast bowlers and not so much the scientific fast bowler's. Whilst facing an intimidation style fast bowler, if u can keep u r hand eye coordination in tact while dealing with someone aiming a fast ball in between u r eyes u can dispatch the ball. I know this is a LOT harder done than said.....

But still.....

That approach of bowling is MUCH different from the more scientific fast bowling techniques which r employed today. Today's bowlers can more or less get tech inputs on how to swing the ball and how to even hold the bloody thing with full technical perfection.

Though I have legendary respect for Bradman, the truth must b maintained that just because u can dispatch intimidation bowlers easily doesn't mean u can do that to bowlers using a scientific approach.

I am willing to bet that guys like Shaun Pollock, Lance Klusener, Virender Sehwag would've fared better ...more
