by Wisden Staff 2 minute play

In this quiz, you need to recall bowling spells from designated wicketkeepers in this century, across formats in men’s cricket.

There have been 22 instances of designated wicketkeepers from a game coming onto bowl in this century in men’s cricket across formats. 19 of them have come in Full Member games and we test your knowledge around these incidents.

One very popular name appears nine times in this list, making your task easier, but the time to reel off the names is adjusted assuming you won’t miss out on this gigantic player. The odds are still in your favour despite a couple of very unexpected names in that list.
