Mankad had dismissed Brown in this manner earlier in a tour game too, but had offered the batsman a warning. In the Test match, no such courtesy was offered. The incident caused a minor controversy. The Aussie media termed Mankad’s act unsporting. Others such as Australia captain Don Bradman said Mankad was within his rights in doing it.
Australia took the series 4-0 with Bradman making 715 runs. One of India’s high points on the tour was Vijay Hazare’s 116 on Day 3 and 145 on Day 4.
