Quiz: Can you name these England all-rounders from the 1990s?

by Wisden Staff 5 minute read

So, you think you know your England all-rounders from the 1990s? Prove it.

In a period of trial and error, England spent the best part of the nineties desperately trying to unearth a replacement for Ian Botham. England got through their fair share of all-rounders in both Tests and ODIs during that time, but the question is: can you remember them?

Take the quiz below to see just how much you remember from a gloomy period for English cricket but a particularly fruitful era for England all-rounders – at least in terms of quantity.

All of the all-rounders featured in our quiz played at least one Test or ODI during the nineties. Can you achieve a 100 per cent score?
