Cricket Tasmania statement on Tim Paine

Following discussions over the last 24 hours, Tim Paine has advised Cricket Tasmania that he will be taking a leave of absence from all forms of cricket for the foreseeable future.

Tim’s decision makes him unavailable for selection for today’s Marsh One-Day Cup match against Western Australia. His place in the squad will be taken by Charlie Wakim.

Cricket Tasmania will continue to support Tim and his family both professionally and personally over the summer.
