    What an amazing contrast of three players from one side.

    To be fair, I don't think the careers of any of the three have turned out in a particularly surprising manner.

    Contrasting fortunes. Pujara is a critical member of the Indian team and a star for the future. George struggles to make the South Australia 2nd XI.

    Gavin Hamilton debuted in that test too. As the caps are awarded alphabetically I imagine he splits the two you mention.

    I'm pretty sure Jimmy Anderson & Anthony McGrath both made their bows in the first test of the 2003 home series versus the Zimbas too. Contrasting fortunes there, it's fair to say, although statistically the latter looks like an ATG test allrounder.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Strictly speaking Bradman was dropped (well, left out of the XI) after his first Test, and Steve Waugh in 1990-91 - replaced by his brother!

    Contrasting careers: Colin Cowdrey made his debut at Brisbane in 1954 and went on to become the first man to appear in 100 Tests, team-mate Keith Andrew, playing only because Godfrey Evans was ill, just one more, in 1963.

    Looks like a typo from aussie tragic, I think he was noting that all of Bradman, Waugh and Ponting WERE dropped at some point.

    I reckon you'd find a lot of great players who were never dropped though. Most of the very greatest that I can think of were never dropped.

    A few from England tests ...

    Dennis Compton and Cyril Washbrook shared a debut against New Zealand at the Oval in 1937

    Dexter, Illingworth and Subba Row against New Zealand at Manchester in 1958

    And both Hollioakes debuting against Aus at Nottingham in 1997 may be the only example of brothers making their test debuts in the same match.

    Mark Taylor & Trevor Hohns?

    Wayne Phillips & Paul Reiffel?

    Seem to recall Michael Bevan and Damien Fleming debuting together too, maybe they were a test apart, i cant remember.

    NZ's bomb-blast tour of Sri Lanka in 1992 had a lot of debutants. By my count 5 made their debut in the first test. Sadly, apart from Dion Nash, they were all fairly crap.

    Hartland, Harris, Vaughan, Owens

    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    tate and sutcliffe debuted in the same game. plus a couple of others who did jack (although i think one of them did captain england)
    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

    Yep, it looked right after a bottle of wine but obviously not
