Quiz! Name all Test cricketers with 5,000 runs and 50 wickets

Captain five-wicket haul
by Wisden Staff 1 minute read

Can you ace this quiz on Test all-rounders with the rare combination of at least 5,000 runs and 50 wickets?

How rare? Well, only 10 players have reached the mark so far. And, naturally, they’re all pretty legendary names. The West Indies lot seem particularly prolific in this regard, with three names out of 10 coming from the Caribbean.

Australia and England have decent representation too, with two names each, with players from South Africa, India, and Sri Lanka making up the 10. You have two and a half minutes to name all 10. No pressure!
