World Cup captain
by Wisden Staff 8 minute read

In this quiz, you have to name every men’s captain who has won at least one World Cup match this century.

There have been five World Cup editions since 2000, and a total of 49 players have captained their sides to at least one win in these competitions. The list is led by an Australian legend (no prizes for guessing who), with an Indian player following him on the second spot.

We have mentioned the number of wins, as well as the country.
