The debut of Australian Star Batsman Don Bradman on this Day Nov 30, in 1928.

England won By Mighty 675 runs in that Match. Australia Scored Just 122 and 66 in their Both Innings of this Match.
Injuries to two England Bastmen who didn’t Play Either Innings of this Match.
Birth of Australian Opener Phil Hughes, Whose Life was cut Short 3 days Before His 26th Birthday.
During a Sheffield Shield game in November 2014, he was struck on the head trying to hook a bouncer and never regained consciousness.
Hughes was expected to fill the gap left by Matthew Hayden’s departure, and for some time it seemed he would, despite his problems with the short ball.
But he struggled in the two Ashes series that followed, and with Shane Watson blooming into an attacking Test opener, Hughes lost his place in the side.
He was trying to win back his Test spot in the summer of 2014 when tragedy struck.
Massive innings win by New Zealand helped them square the series 1-1 against Pakistan in Sharjah.
News of Phillip Hughes’ death after he was struck by a cricket ball came through early on day two, which led to playing being abandoned and the match being extended by a day.
Mark Craig’s seven-for kept Pakistan to 351, and captain Brendon McCullum and Kane Williamson scored 202 and 192 respectively.
It was an emotional victory for New Zealand, only their third away win against Pakistan since 1996.
But one for which the celebrations were muted, out of respect for Hughes.
In Keeping, New Zealand also did not bowl any bouncers in the match.
