Quiz! Most five-fors in Test cricket in the 2010s

by Wisden Staff 6-minute play

In this quiz, you’ll have to name the players to take the most five-fors in Test cricket in the 2010s. Can you?

The period under consideration is from January 1, 2010 to December 31, 2019. We set the cut-off at a minimum of five five-fors in Test cricket, meaning as many as 39 players made the cut.

At the top of the lot is an old-fashioned Sri Lankan spinner, who took 30 five-wicket hauls in the 2010s.

You have six minutes to name all 39 players. We’ve revealed the five-fors each player has taken, as well as the team they represented and the span of their wicket hauls.

All the best!
