Quiz! Name the leading men’s ODI wicket-takers of the 2010s

by Wisden Staff 10 minute play

Can you name the leading 51 wicket-takers in men’s ODI cricket in the 2010s and ace this quiz?

The 2010s was a momentous decade for the 50-over format, with three World Cups, including the greatest World Cup final of them all, and a sea change in the way the game is played, with the advent of T20 cricket seeing run-rates spiral high and records for the highest individual and team scores smashed.

With big bats, big biceps and small boundaries to contend with, the refrain ‘Who would be a bowler?’ has been a common one. And yet plenty of ball-handlers had their say, with the rise in batting skill only making the ability to land the ball where you want it all the more valuable.

We’ve asked you to name the top 51 wicket-takers in men’s ODIs between January 1, 2010 and December 31, 2019, with a tie for 50th place meaning a round number of answers wasn’t an option. You have 10 minutes.
