Ashes 2021-22 Tim Paine embroiled in sexting scandal resigns as Australia captain – Latest Cricket News


Ahead of the start of the prestigious Ashes series against England, Australia has suffered a major setback, where Tim Paine has resigned from Australia’s Test captaincy after being named in a major controversy. Penn has given this information through a press conference. He said, “I resign as the captain of the Australia men’s cricket team.” According to media reports, Penn had sent his obscene pictures and messages to a girl in 2018 which have now gone viral. This is the reason why he has decided to step down from the captaincy.

He said, “It is a difficult decision for me, but the right one for me, my family and cricket.” Australia recently picked a 15-man squad for the first two Ashes Tests, which also includes the name of Penn. But now after being named in this big controversy, nothing can be said about his place in the team. After leaving the captaincy of Paine, now vice-captain Pat Cummins can be made Test captain. Cummins himself has said two days ago that he is ready to take over the captaincy if the need arises.
