In this quiz, you’ll have to name the players with the most runs as captain in Test cricket in the 2010s. Can you?

The period under consideration is January 1, 2010 to December 31, 2019. We set the cut-off to 500 runs, meaning there are as many as 28 players who make this list.

At the top of the pile is a huge figure in Indian cricket, and perhaps the most charismatic player in the international game at the moment. But it’s the Australians who leave an impression, with two of their captains in the top five in this list.
