Can you name every player present at the 2019 Cricket World Cup and ace this quiz?

We all remember the final, of course. Arguably the greatest game of cricket ever played, “England have won the World Cup, by the barest of margins” will forever be sealed into a generation’s minds as the hosts claimed their maiden Cricket World Cup title in unforgettable style.

No doubt you’ll instantly recall the key players not just from that game, but from the tournament at large too. An Aussie quick who topped the wicket-takers charts for the second World Cup in succession, a Pakistan batsman who confirmed himself as among the game’s elite, and a Bangladesh all-rounder who had his finest hour mere months before his darkest.

But how closely were you following, really? Did you pay attention not just to the headline acts but the supporting cast too? And what about those who only ferried drinks, keeping up team morale but little more, or the select few who turned up partway through as injury replacements?

The only way to prove you really know your stuff is to try and name them all, every player who featured in one of the squad’s at the 2019 Cricket World Cup, and ace this quiz. You’ve got 15 minutes. And absolutely no peeking!
