Sir Don’s 334, the then world record, remains an epitome of attacking batsmanship. The 3rd Ashes Test in July 1930 produced his most talked about knock ever. Batting first, he walked into bat early at the fall of Archie Jackson’s wicket; Aussies were 2/1 at this point. Sir Don took centre stage and enthralled a capacity crowd with an innings that remains iconic in the history of cricket. He scored a century before lunch, added another century between lunch and tea before finishing the day on 309. He remains the only Test player to pass 300 in one day’s play. His eventual score of 334 was the then world-record, surpassing Andy Sandham’s 325.
