In this quiz, you’ll have to name the players with the most five-fors in Test cricket in the 2000s. Can you?
The period under consideration is January 1, 2000 to December 31, 2009. We set the cut-off at a minimum of five five-fors in Test cricket in the 2000s, meaning a total of 32 bowlers made the list.
A mind-boggling fact that emerged was that the Sri Lankan legend who sits atop the lot, took 49 five-fors in the 2000s, more than double the tally of the next highest on the list!
The spinners rule the roost in this one, even though there are a few pacers spread about. In all, you have six minutes to name 32 players. We’ve revealed the total five-fors each player has taken, as well as the team they represented.
All the best!
