Victor Richardson leads Aus to 4-0 series win (1936)

The grandfather of the Chappell brothers Victor Richardson was captain of the touring Australians as Bradman decided to skip the tour to South Africa.

The Australians won the series 4-0 with a sole draw at Johanesburg in the 2nd Test.

Stan McCabe topped the batting averages with 420 runs with 2 tons including a fabulous 189 not out in the second test when everyone else struggled.
