Quiz! Fastest to the landmark of 1,000 Test runs

by Wisden Staff 7-minute play

In this quiz, you have to name the batsmen who were the fastest to reach the 1,000 Test runs milestone. Can you?

The cut-off we have kept is that of 20 innings, and 34 batsmen make this list. The top position is jointly held by an Englishman and a West Indian who reached the mark in a mere 12 innings.

We have mentioned the number of innings, their respective countries and the year in which they reached the 1,000-run mark. You have seven minutes on the clock. You’ll have done extremely well to get over 25.

Good luck!
