by Wisden Staff 12 minute read

Can you name every Test batsman who has registered a 50-plus score in five or more consecutive innings and ace this quiz?

This will be quite an interesting one for Test cricket lovers, for it involves some of game’s finest batsmen right from the early 19th century to the present day.

There have been 75 instances till date, wherein a batsman have crossed the 50-run mark in five successive Test innings or more. Six players have done that in a staggering seven straight outings, and one West Indian remarkably features four times in the list.

We’ve mentioned their country and the time period and you have a good 12 minutes to name them all. Just the second names will do.

All the best!
