A series of priceless cricket memorabillia, including Don Bradman's first bat, has been digitally restored by eye Arts and Culture to bring the rich history of the sport to life in the wake of a rejuvenation of the & # 39; men's game & # 39; in public interest.
The present continues to captivate spectators, with the heroism of Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer during the last Ashes test and the World Cup final last month.
The global cricket audience was stunned, mesmerized, and eerily bewildered by the majesty and daring of the all-rounder when he reached a record-breaking 135 * in the final innings to win the impressive jaws of defeat.
His knock saw him etching his name at the height of cricket history, with an innings that go down in folklore after saving the Ashes in sensational style.
Described as & # 39; the best innings ever & # 39; by English batting giants such as Geoffrey Boycott, David Gower and Sir Alastair Cook – Ben Stokes joins an elite club of players who have succeeded in transcending the sport.
On this occasion, Google Arts and Culture has released a large number of gigapixel photos, interactive images and videos.

The Aashes is one of the most intense and oldest rivalries in all sports and the Google Arts and Culture project brought some of the most iconic artifacts and locations from the 127-year-old rivalry
On the photo the famous piece of memory that has fueled the notorious rivalry between the national cricket teams of England and Australia. The fake death announcement was written by a journalist, Reginald Shirley Brooks, and executed in the Sporting Times after the seven-fold defeat of England by Australia in the one-time test of 1882
They include fascinating detailed looks at the willow of & # 39; the largest & # 39; batsman of all time – although Ben Stokes may soon have something to say about that nickname as his rapid rise after an impeccable summer – Don Bradman.
In the 1920/21 season, his brother and two uncles played in a game and the team was a player short, his father, the game's referee, called on his 12-year-old son to make the figures.
It would be the start of a glittering career in which the Australian would be alone on many of Cricket's record lists.
He did not score 12 and a fellow player, Sid Cupitt, gave Bradman the bat. He would etch his scores on his back to record his progress while using the bat that his father shortened for him to fit his youthful form for five seasons.

Other highlights include a detailed tour of the famous Sydney Cricket Ground dressing room, where visiting players – from Ben Stokes to Sachin Tendulkar – undertake to engrave their striking batting and bowling figures on the dressing room door (photo)
He scored 300 with this bat in the 1925-26 season, and it can be seen at the back of the forest.
& # 39; It was given to me by Mr. Cupitt, a member of the Bowral Town team. It was the size of a man, but that didn't matter, & # 39; the great Don Bradman told the Sydney Morning herald around 1930.
& # 39; It was a bat with a weld and nobody carved the branch of a gum tree. That bat meant almost everything to me.
& # 39; With a saw, my father cut three inches off the bottom and rounded it off at the base, and I entered the paddock with my esteemed property.
& # 39; I played shots on imaginary balls until the light failed. I was happy. & # 39;

The & # 39; supertests & # 39; who were the backbone of this competition, are to this day announced as the highest standard of cricket ever played by many of the stars that participated.
However, they do not count as first class matches because the ICC refused to acknowledge the statistics due to the constant queue with Kerry Packer on broadcasting rights.
Other highlights include a detailed tour of the famous Sydney Cricket Ground changing room away, where visiting players – from Ben Stokes to Sachin Tendulkar – take it upon themselves to engrave their striking batting and bowling figures on the door of the dressing room.
There are also new 360 ° options in the middle of the Melbourne Cricket Ground, with a capacity of 100,000 people, making it the largest cricket arena in the world.
The & # 39; Veterans & # 39; table & # 39; is a small wooden table with a leaf attached with hinges with the signatures of more than 300 people who have made a significant contribution to the early beginnings of Test cricket, the formation of the Sydney Cricket Ground and who have participated in events on the ground
Signatures that adorn the table include government officials, administrators, cricket players, soccer players, athletes, journalists, administrators, visitors, and retired players. Included are fragments of the early development of cricket with an overview of the opening of the site in 1878. Built in 1931 it served as a memorial for a passing era
