Tim Paine on 2023 Ashes Series: Former Australia Test captain Tim Paine believes that England do not have the same depth as Australia in the current Ashes series and the Australian team will improve match by match. Australia is ahead 1-0 in the five-match series after winning the first Test by two wickets.
Tim Paine told ‘Sen Radio’, “Australia’s performance in the first Test was average. We have improved our performance a lot. I don’t think the England team has the depth to face Australia. He said before the series That they want hard and flat pitches. They got it in the first Test too, but to no avail.”
He further said, “The England team depends on Joe Root to a great extent. Their top order is not able to run on a green pitch. It is going to be very difficult for their batsmen.”
Penn said that England coach Brendon McCullum and captain Ben Stokes believe in playing aggressively, but entertainment marca cricket sometimes creates problems. He said, when you have the same captain and coach, it is a lot of fun to watch at times. The ego of both is very big and both are very aggressive, but sometimes this aggression overshadows the decisions. In the first innings of the first Test, he made haste in announcing the innings.
