Australian One day and test skipper Tim Paine will now concrete on Test Cricket and consider his one day future after a very difficult and challenging limited overs series in England which saw a greatly under strength Australian side lose the series 5-0.
Australia next face Pakistan in Test Cricket and Tim Paine will once again lead Australia for the first time In Test Cricket since the South Africa series which saw skipper Steve Smith and vice captain David Warner banned for 12 months.
Paines experience along with fast bowlers Mitch Starc, Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood will be
vital leading into the challenges of the next year with India touring Australia next summer and the Ashes in England in July 2019.
Test Cricket for me remains the most important format of the game testing players over 5 days.
