Bradman, Sir Donald George
Sir Donald George Bradman, 1908–2001, Australian cricketeer, widely considered the sport's greatest player and one of the world's most outstanding athletes, b. Cootamundra. His 20-year-long cricket career began in 1928, when he joined the Australian national team. Bradman was probably Australia's greatest sports hero during the 1930s and 40s, setting many records and dominating the cricket by enormous margins. His career batting average was 99.94 runs per inning, which even today remains 30 runs higher than his nearest competitor. He was knighted in 1949.
See his autobiography (1930) and memoir (1950), his How to Play Cricket (film, 1931; book, 1935), The Art of Cricket (1958, repr. 2000), and The Bradman Albums (1987); biographies by A. G. Moyes (1948), M. Page (1983), and C. Williams (1996); E. Morris, Bradman: What They Said about Him (1994).

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).
Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.
Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
Modern Language Association

- Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
- In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
