Sydney, May 29 (ANI): The International Cricket Hall of Fame will be built in Don Bradman’s hometown of Bowral, cementing the town’s appeal as a pilgrimage site for cricket aficionados.
According to The Herald Sun, the Bradman Foundation said it would open next year as an extension of the Bradman Museum, at Bradman Oval in the NSW Southern Highlands.
While the museum celebrates The Don, the world’s greatest batsman, the Hall of Fame will honour past and present international cricketers.
The Hall of Fame list will include 55 of the game’s top players from seven nations, spanning a century of cricket.
The project was financed by a Federal Government grant to recognize the centenary of Sir Donald’s birth in 2008. (ANI)
