The chemistry is hard to explain.
But certain grounds tend to bring the best out in certain batsmen.
Even the Don, it must be remembered, had his Headingley.
Like the peerless Bradman, the Indian batting giants too have had their favourite grounds - their personal Headingleys, if you wish to call them that.
Here is looking at them.

He had made a still-unsurpassed two triple tons in his first two Test appearances there - in 1930 and 1934 - and would make another ton - 173 not out - in his final appearance, giving him an average close to 200 at the famous ground.
