Quiz! Name the batsmen with the fastest men’s ODI fifties

by Wisden Staff 15 minute play

Can you name the makers of the fastest fifties in men’s ODI cricket and ace this quiz?

We’ve kept the cut-off to a lightning 23 balls taken to bring up the landmark, but that still leaves 70 people to get. Your task will be made a lot easier if you manage to guess one player who has 10 entries on this list!

Apart from him, there’s a mix of proper batsmen and hard-hitting tail-enders on the list. You have the number of balls taken, the team they played for, the team the fifty came against, and the year to go on. That should be plenty. Good luck!
