Don Bradman was also a part-time leg-spin bowler who bowled regularly in the local competition for Bowral. In Grade and First-Class cricket it was not uncommon to see him take the ball especially early in his career. In his Test career he took two wickets, both on the Adelaide Oval. In December 1930 he had West Indian Ivor Barrow trapped LBW for 27, while in January 1933 he bowled the great Wally Hammond of England for 85. On one occasion, the 4th Test at The Oval in London 1938, Bradman twisted his ankle badly while bowling and as a consequence did not bat at all in the match.

In 26 Test overs Bradman recorded the figures of 2/72 (Average 36.00), an economy rate of 2.70.
