Tim Paine’s journey from a finger injury almost ruining his career to a shock recall in 2017 to a bigger bomb in March 2018 when he was picked as the Test captain in the time of crisis has been a remarkable one. It’s been a rise like never before and it’s been an inspiring journey. A technically sound batsman who could make some handy contributions and a safe customer behind the stumps, Paine was more than a decent option as a wicket-keeper.
