How Well Do You Know County Cricket?

How well do you know county cricket? We’ll see…

Put that thermos down, this is hard. Really hard. This is not one of your ‘Who won the one-day cup in 2010?’ quizzes, and there’ll be none of that ‘Who was the quickest to 1,000 runs in 2004?’ type stuff here. It’s early April, it’s green, it’s nibbling and you’re batting with a twig – that’s what this quiz is.

You might think you know county cricket, you might even have bought a copy of The Cricketers’ Who’s Who, but this is the acid test. If you can’t separate your Robert Rollins from your Adrian Rollins, just by the way they wear their jumper, you may as well walk away now.

This is the biggie: how well do you really know county cricket? Make sure you show off to your mates… if you don’t fail, that is.
