Quiz! Name every Australia opener in men’s international cricket since 2000

by Wisden Staff 8-minute play

Can you name every Australia men’s player to have opened the batting for them across formats in the 21st century, and ace this quiz?

A total of 49 batsmen have opened for Australia in international cricket in the last 20 years. Only two of them have managed to score over 10,000 runs while opening so far.

A majority on the players on this list are seasoned openers, but a few batsmen known for their middle-order excellence, feature in this as well, which makes this quiz a tad tricky.

We have revealed the runs scored by each batsman as an opener as well as their career span playing as an opener. You have eight minutes to name all of them.

Good luck!
