-At an after-match function in Adelaide, English commentator Brian Johnston
raised Bradman's hackles by criticising a series of decisions by a local
umpire in a match against the MCC. The last straw came when Johnstone
declared loudly that the umpire had "obviously never played cricket".
Bradman earned himself the equivalent of a verbal duck with the spontaneous
retort: "I'l have you know he opened the batting for South Australia for
many years until his eyesight gave out."
