Paines performances with the bat since his recall to the test side has been remarkable very consistent player with a excellent test record. Paine in the 2nd Test was a stand out batting for long periods in both innings and on Day 4 while wickets fell played a great team innings with the lower order. Against the most feared attack outside of Australia’s pace line up it showed the value that Paine’s experience brings to the team.
The keeper also averaged 48 in the Home Ashes series 4-0 win scoring vital runs when Australia needed them most Paine has been a great addition to the Australian Test Team his keeping and level handed presence is to be admired.
