Quiz! The oldest England men’s Test cricketers since 1980

by Yaseen Rana 8 minute play

In this quiz you are asked to name the 31 Englishmen who have played Test cricket after their 35th birthday since 1980.

The man who sits on top of the list played a remarkable 58 Tests after his 35th birthday. The players are ordered by the number of Tests they contested after they turned 35, not by their age.

In some cases, like one legendary England opener on this list, the ‘Tests-after-turning-35’ figure only includes Tests from January 1, 1980, onwards. Good luck! Stats up to date as of September 17, 2021
