by Wisden Staff 12 minute play

In this quiz, you have to name the players to have missed the most games between Test appearances.

In total, players have missed 50 or more Tests between caps on 53 occasions, with one unfortunate individual featuring twice. The most recent entrant to the list slots in at seventh, having made a return to the Pakistan fold after more than 10 years in the second Test of their series against England.

You have each player’s total career span, the Tests missed between caps, and the team they play for to go on. Good luck!
