Funny Story about Don Bradman

Don Bradman walks out to bat at the Melbourne Cricket Ground during his innings of 270 in the third test of the 1936/37 series against England.Image via WikipediaThis story comes from the 2-part ABC documentry about Don Bradman that was screened recently.

It was a game late in Don's career and he had just come into bat shortly before lunch. He was straight into form square driving 3 consecutive deliveries to the boundary.

The opposition keeper was playing his first first-class match and thought he'd take the p*ss out of Don, so he walked up to the great man and said "I guess that's the only shot you know how to play?" (obviously, the guy was a complete idiot).

Don just smiled and replied, "I'll show you a few more this afternoon if you'd like."

The next delivery was very quick and Don square drove, and it flew like a rocket to the boundary.

Don turned to the keeper and said, "Sorry, but I did say this afternoon."

Cricket Jokes: Bear Bottle

EvolutionImage by JOE M500 via FlickrA batsman was having a bad time. He played and missed at every ball and was becoming more hot and flustered every minute. As the bowler was walking back; the batsman turned to the wicket-keeper.

'Phew,' he said 'what couldn't I do with a bottle of beer.'

The wicket-keeper thought for a moment. 'Hit it with the bat?'
