Hailed as one of the greatest cricket teams of all time, the 1948 ‘Invincibles’ are the only Australians to complete an Ashes tour undefeated. Bradman’s ruthlessness, even against war-ravaged veterans at the county clubs, dashed hopes that the legacy of Bodyline would finally be laid to rest and the postwar game resume in a more congenial spirit.
