1Sir Donald Bradman
Some say he is the greatest batsman to have ever played cricket, but Donald Bradman existed in an era where no bowler seemed to have a successful record against him. With a Test batting average of 99.94, his numbers are astonishing. The second person on the list of the highest Test average is way far from where Sir Donald set the benchmark. He had scored close to 7000 runs in tests with an average touching hundred and 29 centuries. Bradman also holds the record for becoming the first person to hit three triple centuries in Tests.
