    I'm sure if you go back far enough you could find 11 players who debuted together. Some of them must have had some success

    Edit: You could probably find 22 actually

    starc and warner actually made their fc debuts in the same match too
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Ta. So not quite what we're looking for here, but a handy trio to arrive in one series. Didn't they all retire at the same time?

    From the 1983-84 5th Test vs Pak match report

    After close of play on the second day, Chappell announced in a television interview with his brother Ian, that he would retire from Test cricket at the end of the match. Later that evening Lillee also decided that this would be his last Test match, confirming his decision next morning, while later in the match Marsh said he would not be available for Australia's forthcoming tour of the West Indies.

    Border might have been, if only because he originally debuted during WSC so he might have missed out when the first XI returned to the fold.

    have always wondered why Lillie and Chappel choose the Pakistan series to close out their careers why not a high profile series vs Windies or Ashes.

    Nope, him and Kim Hughes were the only non-WSC batsman to make the first post-WSC Test

    From what I remember, Chappell was in ill health even though he was only 34 (that was considered old for a player in the early 80's) and he had been through a horrible run with the bat so when he started scoring runs again was a great way to go out on top. I also think that as Chappell, Lillee and Marsh were such great friends they didn't want to play on without each other (and as the latter 2 were such anti-Kim Hughes as captain, it wasn't surprising they didn't want to play under him)
