In 2005, an ICC World XI toured Australia for an ODI series and a one-off Test match and returned with just one win in a tour game, losing all three ODIs and the Test match.
Labeled the ‘Super Series’, the one-sided contests brought the interest levels down on the concept and it never really sparked the kind of enthusiasm the ICC hoped it would.
In this quiz, we ask you to recall the famous Test match at the Sydney Cricket Ground where the cream of Australia’s Test side took on the World XI. The Australian side should be a breeze, but you could stumble here and there on the World XI. We give you the countries the players hail from to make your job easier.
