Default What's your Bradman number? (fan created)

For those of you are aware of Erdös 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:
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!

But you ask as if most of us have opened with a Bd national or club batsmen before.

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.

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!

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.
