Achievable surely?!

Our last was Swann 641.

A chance tomorrow for number 642, Rashid or Khan, or it could be 642 and 643.

I think there's a good chance it will be both. Rashid will probably play, Sidebottom surely won't, and from what Flower said they're not too keen on Harmison at the moment either.

I'd be surprised if Rashid plays. I've got a feeling there might be a recall in the offing for Panesar .

Would it have been in alphabetical order then? Or batting order?
Did anyone notice their numbers?

It's supposed to be done in alphabetical order instead of batting order.

Michael Slater and Brendan Julian both made their test debuts at OT in 1993. (Incidentally this was my first visit to a test match and the one where Shane Warne bowled that ball). Slater wrongly believed he was the 356th player to play for Australia and actually had it tattooed on his ankle before he even got his baggy green. In reality he was player 357 as caps were given in alphabetical and not batting order. Apparently they agreed to swap numbers and CA were happy with it but cricinfo does list Slater has 357.

Yes

I think it will be a while before the next Test debutante as we will be using players who have already played. Maybe on tour to SA there might be one.
Rashid?

Those England women are certainly outplaying the men's team these days. I look forward to one of them joining the men.

Rashid is the only new addition to the test side I can see this summer and I think he's more likely not to play. I can't see a new batsman breaking into the side unless there are plenty of injuries when Patel could force his way in, assuming he's lost enough weight.

Well Patel should really be in the side now batting at 5 or 6. He's really hurt himself what with being an unfit fat git. If he sorts himself out and gets fit then he should be first choice to replace an injured/out of form batter or Flintoff.

Can't see anyone else debuting, can't see them trying new faces during the Ashes unless of course we go 3-0 down we could start moving to the future...

I'd pick an in form Bell ahead of an out of shape Patel. There would need to be two slots for Patel to have any chance, really.

I would too.
But i'd have preferred a fit Samit Patel over Ian Bell (preferably Bell should have had a good 6 months away from the team to pile on runs and really prove himself).
