Quiz! Name all of James Anderson’s Test bunnies

by Wisden Staff 6 minute play

When you’ve taken over 500 Test wickets, as James Anderson has, it’s only natural you’ll have got the upper hand in a few duels with certain batsmen.

From legends of the game to flailing tailenders, Anderson has come up trumps against plenty in his 17-year Test career.

‘Bunny’, of course, is a subjective term, but we’ve defined it here as a bowler having dismissed a batsman at least five times.. Some of the batsmen listed below didn’t exactly struggle against England’s leading wicket-taker, but Anderson also enjoyed his fair share of success in each case.

In total, Anderson has so far dismissed 36 Test cricketers five times or more. How many of them can you name in six minutes?
