    On this, I knew Plunkett made an impression in the ODI series before the Ashes, but I never knew he got a test that year until his recall last year which I thought was his debut, but then I saw he debuted in 05 and I was like, "What? How?" or something

    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.
    Martin Love is one.

    Pretty sure it would've been 06, Sri Lanka at home, at the earliest.

    Correct.

    Cook - Broad probably

    631. Shaun Udal
    632. Monty Panesar
    633. Saj Mahmood
    634. Liam Plunkett
    635. Matt Prior
    636. Ryan Sidebottom
    637. Chris Tremlett
    Mahmood and Prior are spot on from this list. Sidebottom is incorrect (debuted in 2001), rest are in the general right place.

    Think Cabs has the two that Howe has forgotten.

    KP, Blackwell and Monty all spot on.

    I always thought the Oval was his debut. Did his OD form help land a gig before then?

    Caps go in alphabetical order so Carberry before Finn. Also got the wrong Pattinson sibling

    I'm 100% certain it's 2005, because I did about 2000 double takes when I saw he debuted in that year. So he's 628 and Udal's 627 if I've got Colly wrong

    Wait, I thought Swann was like Sidebottom and got an one-off appearance many years before his actual stint in the team?

    Colly debuted heaps early, 2003 or something.

    I've just looked up the absolute rat**** side Anderson first played in against Zimbabwe. Good luck naming all that
