Quiz! Name every Australian opener with an ODI century

by Wisden Staff 6 minute play

In this quiz, you have to name all the Australian batsmen who have scored at least one ODI century as opener.

For a long time, the opener’s role was deemed as a job for specialists, until ODIs paved the way for pinch-hitters to be bumped up the order and maximise the use of fielding restrictions.

Some of the finest ODI openers have emerged from Australia, but this list isn’t just about them – among the 27 names below, some are middle-order batsmen who got a promotion to the top.

You have six minutes to name them all. The span denotes the time frame in which they opened for Australia.
