Tim Paine

Watching Tim Paine bowl is a rare sight. He’s not a best when it comes to bowling and mostly avoids turning his arm around. However, on Sunday, in the Cricket Tasmania Premier League, the Australian skipper bowled a full quota of 10 overs and even picked up a wicket. Paine opened the bowling for the University of Tasmania and bowled some gentle medium pace before switching back to off-spin that helped him break a 114 partnership between Tom Rogers and Caleb Jewell. Paine dismissed Rogers for a well made 52 off 73 deliveries. He ended the match with figures of 1-60 in 10 overs.
