by Wisden Staff 14 minute play

Can you name every bowler who has taken eight or more wickets in a single Test innings since 1945 and ace this quiz?

This one will definitely challenge your knowledge about the game’s history. Till date, there have been as many as 98 instances of bowlers picking eight or more wickets in a Test innings – 78 of those have come since 1945. A Sri Lankan legend features five times in the list.

You have 14 minutes to name them all. You’ll do incredibly well if you manage over 70.

All the best!
