Tim Paine is an Australian professional cricketer who has represented Australia in the test match and one-day international formats, as a wicket-keeper batsman. He has also played for and captained Tasmania in Australian domestic cricket and the Hobart Hurricanes in the Big Bash League (BBL). After making his domestic cricket debut in 2005, he had been selected to represent the Australian national team in 2009 for the first time. However, a serious finger injury had meant that he had been out of the international scene from April 2011 until receiving a recall in the 2017-18 season. Just before the recall, he had contemplated retirement from the sport, due to the lengthy international absence, but his coach had convinced him not to take that rash decision. The remarkable reversal in his career took another turn in March 2018 when he was appointed the long-term captain of the Australian test match team in the aftermath of the sandpaper-gate scandal that had brought significant disrepute to Australia.
