Quiz! Every Australian men’s Test spinner in the 21st century

by Wisden Staff 6 minute quiz

In this quiz you must name every Australian men’s player to have bowled spin in a Test match in the 21st century.

In total, 31 players have bowled at least one over of spin for the Aussies since 2000. Three bowlers have bowled over a 1,000 overs, with the leading wicket-taker on 427.

But on the other end of the scale there are six bowlers who have never taken a wicket despite rolling out some tweakers during their Test career. In total, only three of the 23 have taken more than a 100 wickets, with ten bowlers in single figures. The key to this quiz is part-timers and one-cap wonders. Good luck!
