4. Don Bradman
Don Bradman, byname of Sir Donald George Bradman, (born August 27, 1908, Cootamundra, New South Wales, Australia—died February 25, 2001, Adelaide, South Australia), one of the greatest run-scorers in the history of the game and often judged the greatest player of the 20th century.
The Don — a boy from the bush who carried Australian cricket on his back between 1928-48, the country’s national hero during the Depression and World War II — averaged 99.94 runs per innings over his international career, a record that’s rough twice as good as any other player in cricket history.
His Test batting average was 99.94, slightly better than his 95.14 in all matches, both more than 25 runs and innings ahead of the men in second place.
3. Ned Kelly
Ned Kelly called as Edward Kelly, was born on June 1855, Beveridge, Victoria, Australia, and died on November 11, 1880, Melbourne), most famous of the bushrangers, Australian rural outlaws of the 19th century.
He is one of the great, exploited figure of Australia – a tragic, confused but brave-hearted man who, in many ways, sums up the history of this continent.
He followed the usual pattern of robbery, rape, and murder. They specialized in robbing, or “bailing up,” stagecoaches, banks, and small settlements. From 1789, when John Caesar (called “Black Caesar”) took to the bush and probably became the first bushranger, until the 1850s, the bushrangers were almost exclusively escaped convicts. From the 1850s until their disappearance after 1880, most bushrangers were free settlers who had run afoul of the law. The last major bushranger—and also the most celebrated—was Ned Kelly (1855–80).
The outlaw, Ned Kelly, looms large over Australian culture. Hanged for his crimes at the age of 26 in 1880, the story of Ned was the subject of the first ever feature-length movie, made in 1906.
The Ned Kelly Awards (named for bushranger Ned Kelly) are Australia’s leading literary awards for crime writing in both the crime fiction and true cri. They were established in 1996 by the Crime Writers Association of Australia to reward excellence in the field of crime writing within Australia.
