Quiz! The playing XIs in Nasser Hussain’s first and last Tests

by Wisden Staff 5 minute read

Nasser Hussain’s Test career spanned 14 years, bridging the gap between two very different eras of English cricket.

On his debut in Jamaica in 1990, he was in an England side that included a member of the England XI from the famous Headingley Test in 1981, while in what turned out to be his final Test in 2004, he shared a dressing room with someone who would go on to be a central member in the team that would become the number one ranked side in the world in the early 2010s.

Other than Hussain himself, no one appeared in both Tests.
