When we talk Australia vs England 'Ashes' tests, one name we don't miss is Sir Donald Bradman. specially when we talk runs.
Sir don Bradman is the runaway highest run scorer in over all Ashes test match played thus far, and no current batsmen from either country seems to be getting close to him. From just 37 Ashes test matches, Bradman made 5028 runs from his 63 innings with 7 times remaining not out. He averaged 89.78 against England which, surprisingly, is less than his career average of 99.96 versus all countries. Don Bradman also has the distinction of scoring more century against England than half centuries, with highest score of 334 which he made at Leeds in July 1930 which still the second highest Ashes test score.
Sir Don Bradman also has the best average among all batsman to have played Ashes test ever.
