Test Debutants in the New Millennium
Cricket for India

 



VirenderSehwag_Testdebutants since 1st January 2000

Majid Khan, former Pakistani captain, stated last week that Pakistan had employed the services of as many as 40 debutants in Test cricket in the previous four years. Actually, this is not true. They have capped 26 newcomers since January 1 , 2000; that is in the last five years . In addition to Pakistan , there are three teams, namely India , West Indies and Zimbabwe with 26 Test debutants each . Bangladesh hold the record with 40 players, but then they made their Test debut in 2000 and hence the figure is understandable . On the other hand of the scale, the world champion Australia has had the least number of debutants on their roll-call - just eight. This is reflected in their outstanding track record .

Details of countries with the most capped players in test cricket during this millennium , arranged in the descending order of Test per player ratio :


All captains who have taken atleast hundred Test wickets :
