30th Day of November

1928
Don Bradman made his international debut on this day. But it was a low-scoring debut for the Don. Bradman scored only 18 and 1 in his first Test appearance against England in Brisbane. He was only 20 then. It was a day when another Aussie made his debut. Bert Ironmonger made his debut at the age of 46. He was the oldest Test debutant at that time.

1988
Phillip Hughes, who died at the age of 26 after being terribly hit by a cricket ball on the field, was born on this day. The Aussie was a technically-sound player who became the youngest man to score a century in both innings of a Test match.

1998
Zimbabwe achieved their first overseas Test victory against Pakistan in Peshawar. They became successful in their 15th attempt.
