by Wisden Staff 8 minute play

In this quiz, you have to name every batsman to score 2,000 runs or more across formats in a single calendar year. Can you?

The feat has been achieved 79 times till date and it’s hardly surprising that more than 82 per cent of those have come this century, given the increased amount of cricket played across formats. Three batsmen have achieved the feat a staggering six times, while one other has done so on five occasions.

Your challenge is to name them all withing eight minutes! Just the second names will do.

All the best!
