Kolkata: Former International Cricket Council (ICC) president Jagmohan Dalmiya on Monday said Sir Don Bradman would be remembered with greatest honour and dignity as long as cricket would be played. ''It is perhaps uncharacteristic of Sir Don not to complete his century in life. His greatness transcended all geographical, political, social, economic and cultural boundaries,'' Mr Dalmiya said in a statement here.Sir Don symbolised everything honourable in the game and he was a perfect gentleman on and off the field, Mr Dalmiya said and added that Sir Don had also performed his role as a cricket administrator with credit for many years.Mr Dalmiya recalled that Sir Don had signed the certificates for the blood donors on Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB)'s foundation day in 1982 and said ''Death is inevitable, but it cannot silence the deeds and the glory of legends like Sir Don Bradman.''''Sir Don's journey for the celestial home on Sunday is a great loss for the cricket world,'' he said and offered his condolences to the bereaved family.
