Former Australian Test captain Tim Paine bid farewell to all forms of cricket on Friday (March 17). On this day, he was given a ‘guard of honor in the domestic league. Paine lost the Australian captaincy in 2021 due to the women’s scandal. Due to this, the 38-year-old wicketkeeper was excluded from the Ashes that year.
However, Payne returned to cricket for Tasmania in the Sheffield Shield. Although he did not have a contract with the party. But joined the team and scored only 156 runs in seven innings. Payne made his debut for Tasmania in the domestic league in 2005. After making his debut in the national team in 2009, he played 35 Tests and an equal number of ODIs for Australia.”He’s a fantastic player,” Tasmanian captain Jordan Silk said after saying goodbye to cricket. We will certainly miss him a lot behind the stumps. I don’t think Australia will have a wicketkeeper as good as Tim Paine. Paine could not play his last domestic league match. Paine’s team Tasmania drew the match against Queensland. Tim Paine scored only 45 runs in two innings in that match.
