New Delhi, Online Desk. Former Australia Test team captain Tim Paine has resigned from the captaincy of the Kangaroo team after the sexting scandal came to light. It was a big setback for the Kangaroo cricket team just before the Ashes 2021-22 and now after Penn, it is believed that Steve Smith or Pat Cummins can be made the Test captain of this team. Now in controversy, Tim Paine has got the support of his fellow player Nathan Lyon. Nathan Lyon has called Tim Paine the best wicketkeeper in the world and said he should be included in the playing XI against England in the first match of the Ashes series.
Let us tell you that in the year 2017, Tim Paine sent some obscene pictures and messages to a woman. Now this scandal came in front of everyone and after this matter became public, he left the captaincy of the team. After Tim Paine relinquished the captaincy, questions are also being raised whether he will get a place in the playing XI or not. Now Nathan Lyon has backed Tim Paine and said that he should be given a place in the playing XI. Leon says that Penn has done a lot of courage and has accepted his mistake. Now after such a move, he is entitled to play against England in the Gabba Test match.
Lyon said that Tim Paine is the best wicketkeeper in Australia and in the whole world. I can say this with certainty that he has the support of all Australian players. I believe that this controversy will not have distracted them and we are professional players and will do our job well.
