Ian Chappell calls Don Bradman ‘selfish and vindictive’ as a person

To this day, Australia’s former cricketer Donald Bradman is considered the greatest ever batsman to make an appearance in the International arena. 

If not for his second-ball duck in his last innings, the late cricketer would have ended up averaging 100 in the purest format of the game.

However, his countrymate and another cricketer Ian Chappell has never been a great fan of Don Bradman and recently he went on to call him ‘selfish and vindictive’. It was not his cricket credentials, but his nature which moved Chappell to share such remarks about Don Bradman.

Explaining his comments about an iconic cricketer, the Adelaide born said that Bradman wasn’t a good person and never kept the difference between his personal and professional life. 

Chappell particularly highlighted the incident of 1949 when Bradman decided to drop Keith Miller.  The 76-year old said that Bradman had the audacity to drop the greatest all-rounder of that time just because he had a disagreement with him. Nevertheless, he admitted that not seeing Bradman bat is one of his biggest regrets.
