In this end of year quiz, you have to name the leading T20I wicket-takers in 2022 from full member nations.

At the top of the list of this year’s T20I wicket taker standing is a 23-year-old Irish seam bowler who took 39 wickets over the last 12 months including 11 in the T20 World Cup. His best performance came against New Zealand in Belfast where he took 4-35 including the wickets of Finn Allen and Michael Bracewell.

Only one player from the World Cup winning England squad features in the top ten of the list, with another Ireland player making No.9 in the standings. Two leg spinners are amongst the top ten with the first off-spinner on the list coming in at No.13. You have eight minutes to guess all 38 names on the list with their nationality and number of wickets taken to help you.
