On this day 1947: Don Bradman scored the 100th First Class Hundred

Don Bradman 100th Hundred in FC Cricket came against the Touring Indians at the Sydney Cricket Ground

The Australian Don Bradman is arguably the best dough ever. In his illustrious cricket career of 22 years, Bradman achieved many milestones and fame to establish himself as the greatest of all time. An illustrious achievement by Bradman that shines among the rest is his 100 top hundreds. The Australian legend put his name on November 15, 1947, on the elusive list of 100-century players in world-class cricket.

Though there are 25 players who have made 100 top-notch centuries, Bradman is the only one to see his 100th century lost. His 100th hundred in FC cricket came against the Indian tour at the Sydney Cricket Ground. It was also his 8th and last of his 117 FC hundreds to be lost.

In the game between India and Australia XI, the guests struck first with a score of 326. Gul Muhammad was the Indian team's standout player with an impressive stroke of 85 runs. In response, Australia was in trouble early in the innings as they both lost their opening clubs cheaply. Bradman was the only Australian batter to show some intent and class with the pasture as he hit an unbeaten 172 runs.

His stroke was laced with 18 limits and a single maximum. Bradman stayed on goal for up to 177 minutes before eventually losing to Vijay Hazare. Bradman had given Gogumal Kishenchand a single goal, making him the only Australian batter to score 100 Centurys FC.

Based on Bradman's exploits, Australia reached a massive 380 total runs to take the lead. India returned with 304 runs in the third innings while Australia only managed 203 points and lost the game with 47 runs. Bradman lost his wicket in Australia's second batting innings for a total of 26.
