by Wisden Staff 10 minute play

Can you name every men’s Test captain aged 26 years old or younger since 1945 and ace this quiz?

In total, 41 men have led their country at such a tender age in that time. The youngest ever Test captain was just 20 years and 350 days old when he led his country for the first time, while one notable skipper just sneaks into this list, aged 25 years and 355 days old when he led his side first.

We’ve given you each player’s team, and the date of their captaincy debut. You don’t have their age, but the list is sorted from youngest to oldest. You have 10 minutes. Good luck!
