Most of you might recall the best knocks in World Cup finals, but can you ace this tricky quiz about the bowlers who returned the best figures in each of the 12 finals so far?

Since the first edition in 1975, a good proportion of World Cup finals have seen batsmen scoring career-defining knocks and staking their claim in history. However, it’s fair to also recall those who did the job with the ball, returning the match’s best bowling figures – sometimes even in a losing cause.

In this quiz, you need to name all 12 bowlers with the best bowling figures in each World Cup final. You’ve two minutes to do it in.

Note: For figures that are tied for wickets, we have chosen those with fewer runs conceded, irrespective of the overs bowled.
