Tim Paine with Mitch Marsh on Day 4

Paine was outstanding in a test match in tough conditions taking balls that didn’t carry and others at head height throughout the match.

Mitch Starc claimed 9 wickets in a man of the match performance.

In a match surrounded by a Off field incident it’s heart warming to see Australia perform so well.

Mitch Marsh Scored 96 and Cameron Bancroft 50 along with David Warner and Steve Smith.

Nathan Lyon and Tim Paine continued their amazing relationship with constant encouragement from Paine behind the stumps who has been simply outstanding in his 6 Test matches back in Test Cricket over the last few months since November.
