by Wisden Staff 5-minute play

In this quiz, you have to name every batsman who has aggregated 700 or more runs in a single Test series. Can you?

The all-time record belongs to an Australian, who scored a whopping 974 runs from five Tests against England in 1930. He features five times in the list, followed by a West Indies great who has crossed the mark thrice.

Overall, there have been 33 such instances till date – only one active cricketer makes the cut. We have mentioned the series details along with the aggregates. You have five minutes to name them all.

All the best!
