In this quiz, you have to name every England men’s Test player who scored a century before their 25th birthday.

There have been 44 men who have scored hundreds for England whilst 24 years old or younger, with Harry Brook adding his name to the list in the Rawalpindi Test match. He joins some of his teammates as well as players dating back over three different centuries as youngsters who have had successful starts to their Test careers.

The youngest name on the list was just 20 when he scored his maiden hundred at Trent Bridge against Australia. He went on to become one of England’s greatest ever batters, scoring 5,807 runs in his 20-year career and hundred First-class centuries.


You have ten minutes to guess all the names, with the age of each player when they scored their first century and they date on which they did it to help you.
