    Is there a need to always manufacture some sort crisis with Australian cricket? Things are going as smoothly as they can. I am sure the selectors etc. are working on the long term plan and succession plans for Paine but really, it just makes sense that he leads Australia through this WTC cycle at least.

    Tangentially, how great is it now that we have a WTC and the test teams can also start planning captaincy and line up tactics with 2 year cycles marked down for them.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    Declaration was perfectly fine. If you want the record score big against a true minnow next time we face one. Stop whinging that a declaration was stupid when we won the test. If we lost or drew because Warner went for the record you’d be whinging that Paine was a **** captain too and lambasting Warner as selfish.

    His tenure is a bit like Sammy’s. Nice guy, good leader, mediocre test cricketer brought in during a crisis.

    Rather unlikely, to say the least.

    How the **** do you manage to criticize a captain just when his team won a match with an innings and something.

    When did the ruthless mighty Aussies become so obsessed with record breaking minnow bashing?

    Also didn't Paine just take a blinder of a catch? His keeping is perfectly fine.

    Yeah Joe Burns would have taken it to his right if Paine hasn't selfishly taken a blinder.

    Mediocre cricketer? He's got a higher test batting average than any other Aust keeper bar Gilchrist and Haddin. And he's a very good keeper.

    he is mediocre in the true sense, in that he's in the middle of the bell curve for his role. he's solid, but that's it. given he's also a good leader he thoroughly deserves his place.

    So basically he’s Watling with added captaincy responsibility thrown in.
