by Wisden Staff 5-minute play

In this quiz, you’ll have to name the players with the most runs in international cricket in the 2010s. Can you?

The period under consideration in this quiz is from January 1, 2010 to December 31, 2019. We’ve set the cut-off to a minimum of 8,000 international runs, meaning a total of 27 players make the list.

At the top of the lot, by a long way, is an Indian phenom who has over 5,000 runs more than the second-highest scorer in the decade. Such is the nature of the list, you merely have to name the top batsmen of the last decade.
