Teenager Bradman Thompson from Central Victoria is living up to his name with the bat.

At six-foot-five (195cm), the 14-year-old towers above other kids on the cricket pitch — and it's there he feels most at home.

"I've always had a talent for sports, and I find cricket the most interesting," Bradman said.

"I really like how cricket has a lot of skill to it, and you've got to take your time, there's no rushing stuff."

Confidence booster

Bradman's dad Matthew Thompson said his son first discovered cricket when he was struggling with bullying at school.

The appearances of former Australian cricketer Don Bradman in popular culture are many and varied. His record-breaking performances on the 1930 tour of England made him a national hero in Australia. Bradman was a private person who did not enjoy the adulation associated with his fame.

A separate list shows Test cricketers who hold or have held other notable titles, including baronetcies and Indian princely titles. This section includes all administrators, coaches, cricketers and umpires who were knighted for their services to the game.

"Cricket has helped Bradman in lots of ways, especially with his confidence," Mr Thompson said.

"He got hassled a bit when he was younger, and cricket helped him concentrate on something else, it got him out of the house and active, and he met lots of new people."

Neil Byer, the president the Maiden Gully Marist Cricket Club, the club Bradman plays for, said lots of kids achieved a huge amount out of community sport.

"They play their sport, they get more confidence, it's good for their friendship group, and they develop socially as well," Mr Byers said.

But nobody was quite expecting Bradman to develop as well as he did.

In the last season, Bradman averaged an impressive 275 runs for the season and only got out once, by far the highest average batting score in the district.

Administrative error

Matt Thompson and his son were watching the awards live on Facebook.

"He had the most amazing smile on his face as the scores were rolling through, and then his name wasn't there," Mr Thompson said.

"It was terrible. I was so disappointed for him."

Due to an administrative error, not all of Bradman's scores were officially recorded, and the award was given to someone else.

"I think that my dream would be to become nationally known about it," Bradman said.

"I would like to be known as the next Bradman, and it gives me a sort of name to live up to."
