Quiz! Name every India spinner to take a men’s World Cup wicket

by Wisden Staff 4 minute play

In this quiz, you need to name all the spinners who have taken at least a wicket for India in a World Cup.

Overall, 21 slower bowlers have picked up at least a wicket in a 50-over World Cup from India, with only one taking 30+ wickets. Not all bowlers in the list were specialists — some were part-timers as well, who did a brilliant job with the ball whenever called upon.

We have provided you with the number of wickets they have taken in a World Cup along with the year of their last World Cup game.
