ponting 168 and law 1 mentioned recently and the most contrasting surely
very recently mentioned it seems
Wow, Wally Grout and Bob Simpson debuted together....for some reason I thought they played in different decades (not counting Simpsons return during WSC)
Michael Vaughan and Chris Adams debuted together, and met each other at the crease with the score on 2-4 (two runs, four wickets).
Some great/very good debutants together:
1. Sachin Tendulkar and Waqar Younis
2. Viv Richards and Gordon Greenidge
3. Rahul Dravid and Sourav Ganguly

A devastating West indies bowling debut
Colin Croft and Joel Garner vs Pak in Bridgetown 1976/77
Croft took 7 and Garner 6 in a side that included Andy Roberts in his prime (he took 4 and a part time spinner took the other 3)

NZ debut with a twist
Dayle Hadlee and Hedley Howarth debuted together in 1969 before their more famous brothers Richard and Geoff debuted individually in the 70's
Jadeja and Root
Hick and Ramprakash against WI in 1991. Obviously not ATGs but oddly similar careers.
Did Lillee and Greg Chappell debut together against England in 1970/71? Or possibly Rod Marsh? Maybe not quite , but I cba to check.
