Melbourne: John Bradman has suggested Australia boycott the tour of Zimbabwe which would mirror a move spearheaded by his father as chairman of the Australian board against South Africa in the early 1970s.
“If I were to say anything about the situation, I would link it with my father’s cancellation of the South African series. I think they’re on a par,” Bradman (Jr) said.
Sir Don — who served two stints as chairman of ACB (now CA) in the 1960s and 1970s — cancelled the South African team’s 1971-72 visit because of expected bitterness and violence from anti-Apartheid protesters.
John said the cancellation of the Zimbabwe tour was warranted. “I think so. I think the situations are similar. I would relate it to that.”
