Shane Watson and Mohammed Asif
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.

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.

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
Rikki Clarke and Gareth Batty.
Or are we going to pretend that never happened?
Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
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
