Cricket World Cup 2011
by Wisden Staff 2 minute play

Most fans remember the highest run-scorer from every edition of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup. However, can you remember the man who came second? In this quiz, you have to do exactly that!

Naturally, there are 12 names here from the 12 editions of the World Cup. Australia lead the list with four batsmen, while Sri Lanka, India and West Indies are represented by two players each. There’s one batsman each from Pakistan and England.

One player repeats thrice on the list, making your job easier. This means you have to guess just 11 names across 12 editions.

As hints, you have the year of the tournament, the player’s team as well as the runs they scored in that edition of the World Cup.

You have 2 minutes to get 12 answers right. Good luck!
