The Invincibles – 1948 Australian Cricket Team

The Australian cricket team in England in 1948 was captained by Don Bradman, who was making his fourth and final tour of England. The team is famous for being the first Test match side to play an entire tour without losing a match. This feat earned them the nickname of The Invincibles.

Including five Test matches, Australia played a total of 31 first-class fixtures, plus three other games. Their record in the first-class games was 23 won and 8 drawn; in all matches, they won 25 and drew 9. They won the Test series 4-0 with one match drawn.
