Australia Test captain Tim Paine ends 13-year wait for second first-class centuryCat:未分類

Australia Test captain Tim Paine has scored his second first-class hundred – 13 years after his first. As he passed three characters against exactly the identical opposition to the first time since 2006, the 34-year-old hit 121 for Tasmania against Western Australia at The WACA at the Sheffield Shield. Paine struck 215 at The WACA 13 decades back in what was his fifth outstanding game but had to wait patiently until his 125th match – along with a days – a second century. The batting had been opening for Western Australia if Paine notched his eponymous. Paine captained Australia against England following the five-match series ended 2-2. He averaged just 20 with the bat and also handed just once in 10 innings, hitting at 58 in the first innings of the fourth Test at Old Trafford. David Warner fared even worse at the Ashes, averaging 9.50 after scoring only 95 runs in 10 knocks, adding three ducks in a row, but returned to form this week by 125 to New South Wales against Queensland. However, Steve Smith, that managed 774 runs in seven Ashes innings in 110.57 and just failed to pass fifty once, was out for a duck in precisely exactly the same match. Read more here:
