Profile

For an all-too-brief period in the 1920s it appeared Australian cricket would be blessed by three of the most naturally gifted batsmen to have graced the game - Don Bradman, Archie Jackson and Karl Schneider. Tragically, Jackson and Schneider both died before they reached 24, only briefly showing glimpses of their ability.
