Tim Paine, a former captain of Australia is known for his sound batting technique. Except for the fag end of his career, he has been in the shadows of Brad Haddin. So, despite having great numbers in the domestic circuit, he hardly got any chance to wear the Australian Golden Yellow during his young days. Well, surprisingly, he did captain the Australian Test side for 3 years which later on proved to be the last 3 years of his cricketing career. That’s how destiny really is, isn’t it?
Despite the presence of Brad Haddin behind the wicket, he could have got more chances in the national team, but injuries didn’t allow him to fix the spot. Keepers like Mathew Wade and Peter Neville were already there to make the most of the opportunity. Sadly, for these two and fortunately for Tim, Wade and Neville never really found their mojo in the longest format of the game and Paine finally got a long stretch of run at Test cricket. This was in 2017.
Tim cemented his place in the squad with some good innings lower down the order. He was perhaps the only player who was well-settled into the team when the ball-tampering saga occurred. Paine led Aussies for 3 years and the future looked great, but the career was halted by some controversies off the field. He took the decision to retire from cricket after the unspeakable incident.
