Quiz! Name every England men’s ODI wicketkeeper this century

by Wisden Staff 2 minute play

Can you ace this quiz and name every player to be a designated wicketkeeper for England in ODIs since 2000?

England’s ODI fortunes and attitudes through the 2000s can be traced through the players they have handed the gauntlets to down the years. In the century’s first decade, they often treated the role as something of an afterthought, having part-timers and occasionals stand behind the sticks. In their all-conquering era, they’ve favoured specialists rather than stand-ins.

The full list of players to keep wicket for England in ODIs since 2000 isn’t a long one, but it does throw up some surprising names. The man keeping wicket in the above photo doesn’t feature though; that would be too easy!

Can you name all 16 and prove yourself an expert?
