    Tim Paine fail thread

    So , even if aus win ashes, and he continues to score in binary format, are we going to continue persisting with him?

    Alex carey deserves a shot , after world cup form, regardless of ODI not being indicator for tests. He seems to have the big game temperament - see Labuschagne for another risky selection that turned good.

    Also he's a shot maker and thats what selectors are looking for.

    In my time i havent seen a more useless long term captain than tim paine. He just manages to be a race to the bottom for himself.

    Gloves off: Carey fires as a specialist batsman

    Australian posts twin fifties on County Championship debut, slams four sixes in an over to help steer Sussex to victory

    Paine isnt exactly scoring anything, scoring in binary. i dont think we need him to score tons, just quick 40-s to 50s.

    Iím pretty sure Paine will be playing at least all of the Australian summer

    Carey canít keep well enough anyway and thereís no logical replacement yet

    Surely not. At best he survives to the end of this series. When he fails to make big runs in the first few Shield games next season he'll be out and Carey will be in. Or even Wade as keeper. Can't keep carrying T-Pain

    Carey is a terrible keeper. Wade too far that matter

    Not that Paine is much better but Carey at this stage would be a really poor decision. Not to mention we donít have anyone who could be captain

    His shot selection this series has been really poor. I'm disappointed; expected more. None of the other choices inspire much however so I'm not too anxious to do away with him.
    'It is hard to recall a batsman quite so serene, so unrushed, so unflappable.' Chris Ryan on ... look to the left. Ahhhh.

    I haven't seen enough of Carey in the longer form to make a meaningful judgement, but I've seen plenty of both Wade and Paine keeping in red-ball cricket over the past 12+ months and I really don't think that Paine is the superior of the 2, at this time.

    Theyíll obviously give Smith back the captaincy once Paine collapses within himself back into nothingness.

    Probably this. In the meantime, Tim Paine will be the first Australian captain to win an Ashes series in England for 18 years. Good luck to him, seems a decent cove.


    EDIT
    I thought I'd better check 'cove' after posting that and did enjoy item 2 below.

    Paine is simply none of that.

    Gilchrist wasn't the best keeper going around when got the nod, but he improved out of sight by the time he retired. Haddin to a lesser extent.
