A pause in play as Sir Don Bradman receives a telegram while batting for the Australians Worcestershire in April, 1938
Such interruptions were pretty common back then.
Hampshire’s Lionel Tennyson, during his captaincy days, used telegrams to give his batsmen instructions during games!
Much better than using sandpaper for ball tampering instructions by the Aussies.
This choice photograph and Item was sent to me by Dr Deepal Lecamwasam of Adelaide, a former Thomian and University of Ceylon cricketer. Whether it betters the picture of Bradman and other cricketers having a cuppa tea in mid-pitch …………………. https://thuppahis.com/2022/11/21/mid-pitch-tea-for-don-bradman-12-others/ …. is an issue where the voting count could get quite interesting.
HOW would you vote?
