Quiz! Players with the most wickets at men’s World Cups as captain

Captains wickets
by Wisden Staff 5-minute play

In this quiz, you’ll have to name the players with the most wickets at men’s ODI World Cups  as captain. Can you?

We’ve set the cut-off at a minimum of five wickets per player at World Cups as captain. All of 25 players made the list, with the top three positions remarkably being occupied by prominent Pakistan captains.

This is a tricky list though, especially as you progress further down the list. Think obscure captains of less-fancied teams, and you’ll stand a chance of doing well.

We’ve revealed the total wickets each player has taken as captain, as well the team they represented and the span of their World Cup wickets. All the best!
