Quiz! Name the tailenders with the most Test runs

by Wisden Staff 8 minute play

Can you name the tailenders with the most Test runs and ace this quiz?

We’ve defined tailenders quite loosely, as any player batting between Nos.8-11. That means there’s a fair few players who might more accurately be termed bowling all-rounders in this list, as well as a couple of wicketkeepers who spent enough time batting in the lower order.

The cut-off has been set at 1,000 runs scored when batting at those positions, so 41 players make the cut. You’ve got eight minutes to name them all, and their run tallies in those positions, and their countries and spans to go on. Good luck!
