by Wisden Staff 2 minute play

On the first anniversary of England’s first-ever World Cup triumph in what was the greatest-ever World Cup final, we take you to a trip down memory lane through this quiz – name the Player of the Match in each of the 12 men’s CWC finals.

From 1975 to 2019, the sport has seen 12 editions of men’s World Cup and no cricketer has managed to be named the Player of the Match in more than one final. We have mentioned the year and the team each played for. Beyond that, you’re on your own.

You only have two minutes to name them all. Good luck!
