Tour would worry Bradman: son

Sir Donald Bradman would have wanted Australia to consider the fate of the Zimbabwean people in deciding whether its cricket team should play there, his son reportedly said today.

The Australian team is scheduled to play a World Cup one-day match in Zimbabwe in March and the International Cricket Council said the decision should be made on player safety, not politics.

But Sir Donald's son John told The Daily Telegraph that his father believed decisions like this should not be made solely on the issue of player safety.

Mr Bradman said his father thought decisions should be made "for the good of cricket" and that extended to issues of racism and oppression.

Mr Bradman told the paper Sir Donald would have wanted him to speak out on the issue.
