Quiz! Name these famous cricketers’ siblings

by Wisden Staff 5 minute play

Cricket, more than most sports, is a family game. Can you name these players, who all achieved some level of success as professional cricketers, but were arguably overshadowed by what their sibling, or in some cases siblings, accomplished?

This isn’t a quiz to test which of the Waugh brothers is which, since both had stellar careers, even if Jimmy Ormond did suggest that Junior wasn’t “the best player in [his] family”.

No, this quiz is about those players unarguably in the shadow. For some, had it not been for their fraternal relations, they would be celebrated in their own right; this list even includes a World Cup winner. But there can be little arguing that in each case, there’s a brother who has hogged the limelight.
