The 1st innings scorecard of a TIMELESS TEST match
( thts not wat am lookin for ) is shown above,
england went on to win by 8 wickets.

GOOD ANSWER by rishabh nd rachit- 2nd ashes test match of 1928.
the only instance wher the great DON BRADMAN was dropped
nd made 12th man for underperforming in the previous test.
it was nly his 2nd match :)

The previous test was Sir Don Bradman's debut and he was dropped for this particular test match coz he did not perform.

A test in the Bodyline series?

this is englands tour of australia in 1928/29 preceding the bodyline tour(32/33). Is this the only time Bradman was dropped from the Australian batting line up?
