    And see how many you get. I missed out on one in the time available; bagging 24/25.

    Not a bad site all in all either.
    25/25 with 3 seconds to spare.

    Can't spell, therefore low score.

    Sporcle is an epic site.

    Ditto - other than Cowdrey, got the rest in 3 minutes.

    Edit: And 52/64 in the top wicket taker per decade.

    Edit 2: 20/23 test 300s - couldn't spell Sandham's name right so should've got 21

    Only got 18/25 in the first one. Once you fill in the first row it gets to be a bit of a challenge! And i'm not very good at these things.

    Heres another one, top run scorers per year:
    Can you name the top run scorers in Test cricket matches (since WWII)? - sporcle

    Harder than the other three IMO, only got 44/63.
