Quiz! Name the bowlers to concede over 10,000 Test runs

by Wisden Staff 4 minute play

In this quiz, you’ll have to do something different – you’ve aced everything we’ve thrown at you on runs scored and wickets taken, but in this one, you’ll have to name the bowlers who have conceded over 10,000 runs in Test cricket.

That’s a lot of runs to concede, and guess what, as many as 17 players over the years have been unlucky enough to do so. Of course, longevity is a factor – keep in mind a lot of these are legends of the game who have played a lot of cricket, and therefore, conceded more than most.

Startlingly, however, there’s not a single Pakistan bowler in this list – not one of them have conceded over 10,000 runs in Test cricket.

We’ve given you plenty to go by – total career runs conceded, the span of their playing careers, and the teams they represent. It’s all down to you now.

You have four minutes to figure out just 17 names. No excuses.
