Quiz! Name Australia’s Test debutants under Michael Clarke

by Wisden Staff 5 minute play

Can you name the 24 players to make their Test debuts for Australia under Michael Clarke and ace this quiz?

Clarke’s first game as Test captain came at the end of the 2010/11 Ashes at the Sydney Cricket Ground, which then-permanent captain Ricky Ponting missed with an injured finger. He went onto captain Australia 47 times, leaving him sixth on the lists of most Tests as captain for his country.

In that time, plenty of players received their Baggy Greens marking their Australia Test debuts. These include some cricketers who have gone onto become true Australian greats, and others who came into and left the side quickly.

There were, in total, 24 Test debutants under Clarke. How many can you name in five minutes?
