Fifteen seamers have taken at least one wicket in men’s Test matches after turning 40. Can you name them in three minutes?

It is not easy to play Test cricket – or any outdoor sport – at the highest level after your fortieth birthday. Being a seamer makes it harder, which is probably why only 15 of them have taken wickets in men’s Test matches at that age.

Can you name this ageless brigade in three minutes? The numbers are updated until the point the 15th man appeared on the list.
