Quiz! Players with the most Test catches in a losing cause

Test catches
by Wisden Staff 8-minute play

In this quiz, you have to name the fielders who have taken the most catches in Test cricket in a losing cause.

Catches win matches, they say, but good fielding cannot really be a cover for poor outings with the bat or ball. A total of 49 players (non-wicketkeepers) have taken 25 or more catches overall while ending up on the losing side.

We have mentioned the career span in which they faced defeat in Tests, along with their country and number of catches in defeats.
