This isn’t daunting. Not at all – 26 players, 150 seconds. Can you ace this quiz and name all overseas players who have been captains in the IPL so far?

Since IPL began in 2008, foreign players have been a crucial factor in the fortune of franchises, despite the cap on only four overseas players in one team. It’s not uncommon that, for all huge local talent on display, overseas players have been handed the captaincy repeatedly.

From bringing in their international experience to identifying local talent and helping them groom, certain overseas stars have proven to be great captains, even being retained to lead one team for years.

So far, there have been 26 overseas players who have captained at least once in the IPL. It’s time for you to take the quiz and see how well you remember those names, all with just 150 seconds in your kitty!
