Quiz! Every bowler to complete a men’s ODI spell at an economy of one or lower

by Wisden Staff 4 minute play

In this quiz, you need to name every bowler in men’s ODIs to complete their quota of overs with an economy rate of one or lower.

Bear in mind that ODIs had 60 overs in the early days, with England playing quite a bit of 55-over ODIs until 1995. 20 bowlers have finished their spell with an economy rate of one or lower in ODIs, with the latest of them by an Ireland player in 2021, 13 years since it last happened in a men’s ODI.

How many can you name in four minutes?
