Quiz! Every five-wicket haul in a losing cause in an ODI World Cup

by Wisden Staff 3 minute play

In this quiz, you need to name every bowler to take a five-wicket haul in a losing cause in a men’s ODI World Cup game.

You are given the country the player hails from, the opposition he was up against, the year in which it took place and the final spell of the bowler. Four of these happened in the 2019 ODI World Cup.

In all, there were 16 such spells. How many can you name in three minutes?

Good luck!
