Quiz! Name all the batsmen dismissed by Mitchell Starc in the 2019 World Cup

by Wisden Staff 4 minute play

The 2019 World Cup happened less than a year back, but it feels as though ages have passed since the tournament. Can you ace this quiz on its leading wicket-taker, Mitchell Starc?

Australia failed to go all the way in pursuit of their sixth World Cup title, but were kept in the hunt by Starc, who became the highest wicket-taker in a single edition of the tournament, displacing Glenn McGrath.

In all, Starc took 27 wickets in the competition, including two five wicket-hauls, equalling the most by any bowler in a single edition.

In this quiz, you have to name all the 27 bowlers dismissed by him in the tournament. Can you guess them all? Only last names would do, and you have four minutes on the clock.
