Profile

A wicketkeeper-batsman who was next in line behind Brad Haddin as far back as 2009, Tim Paine's career almost ended by a finger injury that required multiple operations before he made a surprise Test comeback and stunning elevation to captaincy in the eventful summer of 2017-18. Paine originally broke his right index finger in November 2010, when he was struck on the hand by a Dirk Nannes delivery while batting in an Australian Cricketers' Association All-Stars T20 match, and it caused him considerable problems over the next few years. It was extremely unfortunate timing for Paine, who had played four Tests earlier in 2010 against Pakistan and India while Haddin recovered from an elbow injury. On the India tour especially, Paine had shown impressive ability with the bat, scoring 92 and 59, but his own injury problems led to Matthew Wade jumping him in the queue to become the new second-in-line to Haddin. Although Paine subsequently appeared in a few ODIs and T20s, he spent nearly six years out of the national set-up before being recalled in February 2017 for a T20 series against Sri Lanka.
