Quiz! Name the batsmen fastest to the landmark of 5,000 ODI runs

by Wisden Staff 8-minute play

In this quiz, you have to name the batsmen fastest to the landmark of 5,000 runs in men’s ODI cricket. Can you?

Last week, we asked you to name the batsmen fastest to reach 5,000 Test runs. This time, it’s about the shorter version. Your challenge in this quiz is to identify the batsmen who reached the mark in 150 innings or fewer.

Unsurprisingly, it’s a list dominated by the top-order batsmen, and the Australians lead the way with 10 representations followed by India who have eight. We’ve mentioned the country and the year in which they reached 5,000 runs, along with the number of innings.

You have eight minutes on the clock. Good luck!
