by Wisden Staff 6 minute play

In this quiz, you’ll have to name the England batsmen with the most Test runs in Asia. Can you?

Asia has always been a tough place for English batsmen, the dust bowlers in the continent far removed from the swing and seam-friendly conditions at home. Despite that, a few England batsmen have cracked the sub-continent.

There are as many as eight England batsman to have scored over 1,000 runs in Asia. In this quiz, we’ve set the cut-off at 500, meaning you’ll have to name the 32 England batsmen who have, over the years, scored more than that in the sub-continent.

We’ve revealed the runs they’ve scored in Asia, as well as the total span of their Test careers. The rest is up to you to figure out. The clock has a full six minutes on it.

All the best!
