Arthur Morris, one of Australia’s finest opening batsmen and a key member of Don Bradman’s ‘Invincibles’ side, has died at the age of 93.

Born in Sydney’s renowned beach side suburb of Bondi, Morris was the first batsman to score centuries in both innings of his first class debut as an 18-year-old for New South Wales.

Left-hander Morris scored 3,533 runs in 46 tests at an average of 46.48 and was named in Australia’s team of the century in 2000.

It was the 1948 tour of England where Morris had his crowning moment, scoring the most runs as the “Invincibles” went unbeaten throughout.
