Quiz! Every Bowler Who Took Multiple ODI Five-Fors As A Teenager
by Wisden Staff 3 minute play

In this quiz, you have to name every bowler who took a men’s ODI five wicket haul before their 20th birthday.

There have been some incredible teenage bowling sensations over the years, but only 12 have managed to take a five-for in the men’s ODI format while still in their teenage years. Among those names are players who have gone on to become legends of the game, with more than half the list Pakistan players. Four bowlers have pushed their names up onto the list in the last seven years.

Only full member nations have been included, and you have three minutes to guess everyone.
