Bray then cites Bradman s mount and prints his own rejoinder. For instance concerning Bradman s statement that he refused to encourage the bowl ing of bumpers. Bray says apparently he did not Dis courage it either and he cites Fingleton s assertion that apart from setting a close leg Side Field there was almost As much intimidation in the past two series As in the body line series discussing Bradman s state ment that Hammond had not produced the tangible evidence required for the appointment or new test umpires. Bray save he omits to mention that Hammond twice protested to the umpires sub committee of the australian Board of Cricket control a to refused the request because no written evidence was produced.
