Ashton Agar, not Kutcher, is making his Test debut in the white heat of Ashes cricket and their selectors will hope he doesn't turn to jelly.
The 19-year-old is a left arm orthodox spinner, perfect for Kevin Pietersen, or so the theory goes, but he is as raw as they come.
He has played just 10 first-class matches since his debut for Western Australia back in January, and even then he only got the chance due to an injury to the last great Aussie spin hope Michael Beer. Remember him?
Forget Pakistani asylum seeker turned Australian citizen Fawad Ahmed, the Baggy Green cap - presented by Glenn McGrath - will be worn by a young man of Sri Lankan heritage.

His grandfather Nala Hewawissa played cricket for Dharmarajah College, Kandy and has a trophy named after him.
Agar though is Australian through and through, and up until April of this year was very much a part of their youth set up.
He was an Australian Institute of Sport scholar, training at the Brisbane centre of excellence in the aftermath of his first taste of Sheffield Shield cricket.
Agar was taken on the tour of India for experience, where he bowled at the current squad in the nets and played in two practise matches taking 3-107 and 1-27 in the two games.
Bit of a blur: Ashton Agar ahead of the series
A best bowling performance of 5-65 against South Australia caught the eye during last season and he was promoted from the Australia A squad to the full Ashes squad late, along with Steve Smith.
Speaking earlier this year Agar said: "Meeting up with the Australia squad is a good opportunity for me to learn how to bowl to better players.
"I can learn what I need to do to perform at an international level and that is the level I'd like to get to one day."
