    Tim Paine

    He speaks well, and projects integrity.

    But I must say I have been disappointed in his captaincy (the latest ****-up was his declaration on Sunday which showed no feel for the wider game), his referrals (which cost an Ashes series win), his batting, and especially his keeping (which was meant to be unimpeachable according to his boosters when he was picked for the Ashes last Summer).

    He guided the team and Australian cricket through its hour of need, and seems a ripping bloke (important in the Langer era).

    But please step aside at the end of the Summer for the closest thing us Australians will get to another Adam Gilchrist in our lifetime.

    All the stars are aligning – Paine turns 35 next week, Smith’s captaincy ban expires at the end of the Summer, and Carey is cherry-ripe after his World Cup blitzkrieg and his brilliant start to the Shield season.

    His CPL record also leaves a lot to be desired.

    Keep Paine as long as he can play imo.

    Smith shouldn't captain. Regardless of how you view the sandpaper thing, he was captain and it happened under him. I get that he shouldn't shoulder blame, but he isn't a strong leader.

    Once Paine is out, make Cummins captain, replace Paine with Carey, and then Carey can assume the leadership if necessary after 12 months.

    I personally don't mind the idea of having our own Brearley. It's probably the best spot to have him as well because his keeping imo is test standard most of the time.

    His reviews didn't cost an Ashes win. Marcus Harris and Peter Siddle did. IMO he's been tactically good as captain. Pulled a few really good moves, including the declaration last test. Pakistan was 6/80 odd at stumps that night and the test won by an innings with a day to spare despite threats of weather. I'd say it was bang on.

    There was nothing wrong with the declaration, it worked well enough to win without having to bat again and allowed enough time for there to be a lot more rain interruptions than happened.

    Declaration had no feel for the wider game

    Far more glory would have been brought to Australian cricket had an Australian got the world record and, in doing so, potentially held it for a very long time...than winning a Test nobody will remember (fair enough if the series was on the line).

    The two things were not mutually exclusive in any case

    He was a war-time leader

    It's peace time now, so bring on the next Adam Gilchrist

    I didn't think i'd ever see Tim Paine described like Winston Churchill or Adolf Hitler.

    Declaration was fantastic. I slavishly agree with Flem, TFO, Burgey and Daemon.

    Agree with Howard on the declaration. No one will remember this yet another test win over Pakistan (yawn) but a world record coupled with a win would have been etched in everyone's minds.
