Quiz! Name every Australia spinner with a Test five-for since 1980

by Wisden Staff 5 minute play

Can you name every Australia spinner to take a Test five-for since 1980 and ace this quiz?

While one man has dominated the modern history of Australian spin in the 1990s and 2000s, both before and after that individual, finding a regular frontline tweaker proved a struggle. That means there are plenty of obscure names to have claimed one or two five-wicket hauls without staying around for too long.

You’ll also do well not to forget the part-timers to have had a day in the sun. There are 19 names to get in five minutes.
