Quiz: Can you name these England one-Test wonders?

by Wisden Staff 2 minute read

Take the quiz and see if you can remember the name of these England cricketers who only played one Test.

It’s not all about the long game. Cricket has yielded many one-Test wonders, and England have had their fair share.

The selectors would often shuffle the pack during Test cricket’s infancy, but there was only a solo one-capped Test cricketer in both the 1960s and 1970s. They both feature in this quiz.

England’s ‘let’s not talk about’ decade, the 1990s, featured six of our one-Test heroes, but, perhaps surprising, the 2010s have already matched that.
