Rivalling Rachel Haynes for the comeback story of Australian cricket, Tim Paine became Australia’s Ashes winning wicket-keeper in 2017-18 after seven years of injury riddled frustration since his Test debut in 2010. Paine played a pivotal role with accomplished keeping and vital runs in the middle order as part of Australia’s 4-0 win. Just six months earlier Paine had considered retiring from the game and was looking at taking on an administration role with #TeamKookaburra, we’re glad he stuck to playing a bit longer!
