Quiz! Name every England men’s Test opener in the Nineties

by Wisden Staff 4 minute play

In this quiz, you have to rack your brains and try to name every cricketer who opened the batting for England in men’s Tests during the 1990s.

The Nineties was a rollercoaster of a decade for England with 14 players given the opportunity to face the new ball, from established names who enjoyed plenty of success, to those who failed to reach even double figures for appearances at the top of the batting order.

While some of the names on the list are obvious ones, others might have slipped your mind. You have four minutes to name all of them.

Best of luck.
