Bailey and Marsh survived through a series because we won the matches. Hughes kept on getting dropped mid-series because we'd lose.
    That's an interesting question because I think a similar exercise with England would see you go back years as well.

    So um England.

    Swann, Panesar Tredwell Prior GJones Bairstow KP Strauss Trott Collingwood Compton Carberry Morgan Taylor Bresnan Pattinson SJones Plunkett Tremlett Onions Finn have to be added somewhere.

    I don't even remember Anderson's debut, like I wouldn't have a clue which makes it difficult working out between him and Bell for me.

    Martyn got chopped straight away. Katich and Clarke (in that order I think) got chopped as the 05-06 home summer went on. Technically, one of them lost their place because Hayden (or Langer?) returned to the team from injury and Hussey moved down the order, so it doesn't really quite meet my criteria of only losing their spot because of form reasons, but it's closer than Usman losing his place because Ponting is back from his daughter's birth

    also I cant for the life of me figure out who 387 would be for Aus. Can't think of any batsman who debuted between Clarke and when Lehmann stole Mark Waugh's place for the 2002-03 Ashes.(I know Lehmann debuted in 1998)

    All correct, would you care to venture a guess where though?

    387 wasn't a batsman. The batsman to debut before Clarke (385) was indeed debuted in the 2002/03 Ashes, but as you've noted, wasn't Lehmann.

    653 (and therefore all subsequent answers) is incorrect. Timeline is spot on but you've forgotten someone.

    I think I'm missing a few because I'm struggling a bit after that. Remember Amjad Khan in the West Indies, Darren Pattinson 2008 v SA and not much else. Broad was 2007 in Sri Lanka.

    I wish I could work out England from the 2005 ashes. Bell was the last guy to debut before the 05 Ashes right? So KP is 626. Colly 627? Shane Udal (628) debuted straight after the Ashes. So did then Somerset player IAN BLACKWELL (629). thanks to his recall last summer, I know Liam Plunkett debuted in 2005 too....which means I've got one too many here if Cook is 630. Maybe Udal had already been picked? I know he was an old ****. Monty debuted with Cook right? So he's 631. Sajid Mahmood was here in 06-07. 632?

    Lovey! So few guys got debuts around that 2000 to 2004 time you'd think it'd be easy to remember the few new guys but I can't.

    I'm sure no one debuted between Morgan and Patel. There was a big deal made of the fact England kept the same tea for 2 years. So I must have forgotten a couple of people at the fag end of the first Moores tenure (08-09ish). NFI who that is
