Quiz! Name every bowler with 30-plus Cricket World Cup wickets

by Wisden Staff 5 minute play

There have been 29 bowlers to take 30 or more wickets at men’s Cricket World Cups. Can you ace this quiz and name them all?

You might have scored highly on the quiz asking you to name the players with more than 1,000 World Cup runs, but this is a completely different challenge. New Zealand and Australia sit joint-top of the teams with most players in the list, with six apiece, underlining the latter’s dominance and the cruelty of how the former have come so near so many times.

Perhaps surprisingly, West Indies, winners of two of the first three World Cups, don’t have a single entrant, while current World Champions England only have one.

You have five minutes to name 29 bowlers. How will you do?
