Most wickets after n test matches from debut

Filed under: cricket,sport — ckrao @ 12:18 am

Here is a list of the leading test cricket wicket takers after playing n matches. A few current-day players feature and I hope to update this list over time (last updated January 31 2016). It was created largely manually using ESPNCricinfo’s Statsguru starting from [1] and [2], and using lists of the fastest to multiples of 50 wickets here.  Corrections are more than welcome (updated: October 12 2017).

  1. Hi. How did you use Statsguru to find this? Statsguru doesn’t return a query for most wickets after n tests right? It’ll only return players who have played n tests and not more.
