Quiz! Name the England batsmen with the most Test runs at No.3

by Josef Rindl 4 minute play

Can you name England’s highest Test run scorers batting at No.3 and ace this quiz?

First you absolutely smashed our quiz on Test cricket’s greatest run-makers at three. Then you made record totals naming Australia’s top-scorers in the position. Now, how will you fare guessing England’s very best to have occupied the one-down position.

The role itself is a tricky one – an early wicket requires you to essentially assume the opener’s role against the new ball, while a big opening partnership could make you sit with your batting pads strapped on for hours.

Below are the 20 Englishmen to have notched up over 1,000 Test runs at No.3. You have four minutes to name them all. Good luck!
