Quiz! Name Every England Men's Test Opener In The 21st Century
by Wisden Staff 8 minute play

Can you name every England opener in men’s Test cricket in the 21st century and ace this quiz?

Much of the second decade of the century for England was defined by their search for a second opener to partner the man who sits first on this list, after the retirement of the man who sits second on this list. To score highly, you’ll have to remember all of those tried and then discarded, and also the occasional pinch hitter and nightwatchman picked when England got funky.

There are 31 names to get in eight minutes. Good luck!
