Australia's tally of Test debutants over the past 10 years will reach 53 - more than double the number of the previous decade - if Jhye Richardson, Will Pucovski and Kurtis Patterson face Sri Lanka at the Gabba on Thursday.
Once one of the most settled sides in Australian sport, the numbers show just how much selectors have chopped and changed the team since Ben Hilfenhaus and Phillip Hughes debuted against South Africa in February 2009.
Since then 48 other players have been called in for debuts among a total of 63 players used, with Peter George, Bryce McGain and Graham Manou among a list of nine one-Test wonders.
In the golden decade prior to that there were 26 debutants.
That era was of course one of the finest in Australia's history, as a wealth of talent went on two separate world-record 16-match winning streaks and lost just three series in total.
Australia's coach Justin Langer compared the potential debut of 20-year-old Pucovski to the chances given to his own former teammates Ricky Ponting, Michael Clarke and Damien Martyn at a young age.
"There's always those considerations (about pushing up players too early)," Langer told SEN Radio.
"You weigh it up and it's all that's on your mind really. But he's a terrific young bloke.
"We've seen in the past a young Damien Martyn, or a young Ricky Ponting, or a young Michael Clarke come into the Australian team.
"If he plays or not, it's a great learning experience for him."
The current period of change is only rivalled in Australian Test history by the 1970s and early 1980s, where the team was torn apart by World Series Cricket and later the South African rebel tours.
In fairness to the selectors, Australia has played more Test cricket in the past decade than ever before, with the team having featured in 113 matches since the start of February 2009.
Twenty-one players have been used in the past year alone, with selectors struggling to settle on a capable batting order in the absence of the suspended trio Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft.
Pucovski finds himself in a five-way battle to fill three spots in that batting order, along with Patterson, Matt Renshaw, Joe Burns and Marnus Labuschagne.
Richardson is in a fight with Peter Siddle to be Australia's third quick for the pink-ball Test at the Gabba, after back injuries forced Josh Hazlewood to be omitted.
