Sir Don Bradman: 299* [396 balls]. In the timeless Test played at Adelaide Oval, Clarrie Grimmett took 7-116 as South Africa was bowled out for 308 in their first innings. Australia's total of 513 in their first innings was thanks to Bradman, who hit the South African attack to all parts of the ground even as he took the match away from England. Bill Woodfull (82), was the only other Australian batsman to make a half-century in the first innings, but that didn't matter to Bradman, as he starred in the remainder of the hosts' first innings. Grimmett was among the wickets again in South Africa's innings as he took 7-83 as the visitors were bundled out for 274; Woodfull and Bill Ponsford then easily chased down the target of 70 as Australia won by 10 wickets.
