by Wisden Staff 10 minute play

Can you name every male player to take a Test wicket for England in the 2000s and ace this quiz?

The Noughties saw England’s two leading wicket takers start their careers, and a host of other players who are rated as England greats play large parts of their careers. But there were also many bowlers who came in and left the side just as quickly, and more than a few part-timers who managed to get lucky after turning their arms over.

In total, 49 players claimed at least one wicket for England in the 2000s. How many can you name in 10 minutes?
