For those of you are aware of Erdös number (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erd%C5%91s_number) you may have often wondered what is your Bradman number. Although there is no formal consensus, we can define it to be # of degrees of separation by batsman who partnered with Bradman tracing via any format.

Here is Tamim Iqbal's lineage:
Bradman-Morris (http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/match/62689.html) -> Morris-CM McDonald (http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/match/62793.html)-> CM McDonald - RN Harvey (http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/match/62895.html) -> RN Harvey- PJ Burge (http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/match/62925.html) -> PJ Burge- RB Simpson (http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/match/62986.html) (ODI) -> RB Simpson - B Yardley (http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/match/64164.html) -> B Yardley- J Dyson (http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/match/64193.html) -> J Dyson- David Hookes (http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/match/65350.html) -> David Hookes- Allan Border (http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/match/65393.html)-> Allan Border- Ian Healey (http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/match/64469.html) -> Ian Healey - SK Warne (http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/match/65025.html) -> SK Warne- Ashok Menaria (http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/match/501258.html) -> A. Menaria- OA Shah (http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/match/548377.html) -> OA Shah- RT Doeschate (http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/match/542621.html) -> RT Doeschate- Shakib-al Hasan (http://www.espncricinfo.com/champions-league-twenty20-2011/engine/current/match/521325.html) -> Shakib al Hasan- Tamim Iqbal (http://www.espncricinfo.com/champions-league-twenty20-2011/engine/match/578139.html)

Tamim has a Bradman # of 15. (Simply count the number of arrows).

What's your Bradman number?

Throw out some random names and I will spit out their Bradman number's for you. Wish there was a definite algorithm as some of the choices were random...

I wonder what's Bannerman's Bradman number will be. Surely a negative one.

This is sick!

Thanks all.

@Roey, our own Shehwar used to bowl to Abir. Wonder if he batted with him. So non-technically he might've had his own BN.

Try mine. I played with my BUET colleague for the EE faculty team who played for Wari alongside Samarasekara. Go!

I played with Fayez Ahmed, Shakib's batting and bowling partner at BKSP. I guess that sets my BN at 16!

Fayez works for me and we play on ocassion.

Oh! Bowling to someone, counts as well? I bowled a few overs to Shariar Nafees's lil bro in the nets. And he obviously played with Shahriar. And Shahriar opened with Tamim. I guess my Bradman no. is 18 then!
