The number 334. Sir Donald Bradman set the record for the highest Test score by a batsman of 334 against England in 1930. The record stood as an Australian record (but not world record) until the 2003-04 season, when it was broken by Matthew Hayden, who scored 380 against Zimbabwe.
So what’s my connection to 334? It just so happens that my wife and I have found 334 geocaches so far. It’s a tenuous (and temporary) link to The Don, but I’ll take it. The next Bradman-related milestone we’ll reach will be 452 – his highest first-class score, which was made for NSW against Queensland in 1930. Hopefully we’ll get there this year.
