Quiz! Every teammate of James Anderson in ODIs

James Anderson ODI
by Wisden Staff 13 minute play

In this quiz, you have to name every England player who has featured alongside James Anderson in ODI cricket.

Anderson undoubtedly ranks among the greatest – if not the greatest – Test quicks of all time. And while his one-day career came to a close by 2015, he still finished with 269 wickets, the most by any England men’s ODI player.

His ODI debut came exactly two decades ago – on December 15, 2022 – against Australia in Melbourne. On a day (and night) when Adam Gilchrist smashed a 104-ball 124, Anderson finished with figures of 6-0-41-1, claiming the scalp of the centurion as his first international wicket. Then a 20-year-old with gold streaked hair, Anderson went on to play 194 ODIs.


In all, he played alongside 78 England ODI players. You have 13 minutes to name them all.
