Quiz! Name every Australia men’s Test captain since 1970

by Wisden Staff 5 minute play

Can you name every Australia men’s Test captain since 1970 and ace this quiz?

The ‘equivalent’ version of this quiz for England shows one of the main differences there has been between the two sides in modern times. Whereas England have had 21 captains since 1980, Australia have had just the 11 in that time, and just the 16 since 1970.

All but three captained their country more than 20 times as Australia became one of the most dominant teams cricket has known.

We’ve given you the captaincy spans, and the Tests as captain all in, rather than just since 1970. Can you name all 16 in five minutes?
