In this famous final Test, Don Bradman playing in his final Test match needed just four runs to take his aggregate to 7,000 runs and his average to 100. He was given a standing ovation walking out to the wicket, Yardley shook his hand and the England team and the crowd gave him 'three cheers'. He then faced one ball from Eric Hollies before being bowled playing forward to the next ball, therefore finishing with a Test average of 99.94. Australia beat England by an innings and 149 runs
