Tim Paine: Former Australia captain to take immediate break from the game

BBC Sport says Former Australia Test captain Tim Paine is set to miss the Ashes series against England after announcing he will take an immediate break from cricket.

The wicketkeeper stepped down as skipper last week over a historical investigation into sexually explicit texts which he sent to a female colleague in 2017.

In a statement, Cricket Tasmania said Paine, 36, had advised them that he was taking a leave of absence “for the foreseeable future”.

It added that it “will continue to support Tim and his family both professionally and personally over the summer”.

Earlier this week, the state association’s chairman Andrew Gaggin said Paine’s treatment by Cricket Australia had been “appalling.”
