Quiz! Name every England men’s Test seamer to bowl in Australia this century

by Wisden Staff 4 minute play

Can you name every England seamer to bowl in a men’s Ashes Test in Australia this century and ace this quiz?

In total, 22 quicks have rolled their arms over for England down under since the start of the third millennium. Most have struggled to find consistent success, with only two averaging under 30. One, who is now employed in a high-profile coaching job, bowled just four overs with the new ball, conceded 28 runs, went off injured, and never played another Test. Ouch.

You’ve got four minutes, and we’ve given you each bowler’s wicket and appearance tally in Australia this century, which should be helpful in weeding out the part-timers. Good luck.
