In this quiz, you’ll have to name the players with the most Test wickets as captain. Can you?

It’s not a big list, given the relatively fewer number of bowling captains over the years. That said, there are some legendary names in there.

Note that we’ve only considered wickets the players have taken while being the designated captain. We’ve revealed the numbers of wickets as well as their teams and their captaincy spans.

It’s plenty to go by. You have four minutes to name the 19 players. All the best!
