by Wisden Staff 3 minute read

Twenty-eight years on, how well can you recall the men involved in the third Test of the 1990 Test series between England and India?

England managed to draw with the Indians at The Oval, which secured a 1-0 series win, but they were made to sweat after India posted a mammoth 606-9 declared in their first innings.

Oh, and not only are we testing your knowledge of the 22 players, but also the two head coaches and umpires. That’s 26 faces you have to name.

Try to guess the man then flip the cards over to see if your inkling was correct. Line-ups are from both teams’ first innings. Good luck!
