Tim Paine Outstanding Test Return In Gabba Opening Ashes Test

 

By Dan Stapleton Nov 27 2017

Australian Wicket Keeper Tim Paine returned to Test Cricket with nothing but breathtaking takes behind the stumps. Brilliant stumping and fast soft hands are Tim’s trade marks.

Below Paine appeals successfully for his 2nd Test stumping (1st since Test debut at Lords 2010)

Tim Paine was outstanding for Australia in this test match managed to get important calls and stumpings Going Australia’s Tim is a very smart man. He will do Steve Smith’s Team a lot of good over the rest of the Ashes series and well into 2018 he in my view is the long term Test Keeper that Australia need. All respect to Matthew Wade but Paine is a pure gloveman that Australia needed. Runs are secondary and he contributes with positive Team attitude something that Australia teams are built on, very proud of my mate Tim always knew he had this in him.
