Australian cricket captain Tim Paine QUITS immediately after the married father-of-three was caught ‘sending a female co-worker a lewd pic’ and a string of VERY rude messages
Australia’s Test cricket captain Tim Paine has stepped down from the team amid a shock sexting scandal.
The married father-of-three, who has led the team since the Sandpaper-gate scandal in 2018, is under investigation by Cricket Australia.
He announced his resignation in a statement on Friday afternoon and will hold a press conference and 2.30pm on Friday. It is unclear if he will play in The Ashes this summer.
Paine sent a photo of his penis to a female co-worker along with a stream of lewd text messages, many of which are too raunchy to publish.
‘Will you want to taste my d**?? F**k me, I’m seriously hard,’ one of the messages sent to the Cricket Tasmania employee read.
Australia’s Test cricket captain Tim Paine, a father-of-three who has been married to his wife Bonnie (pictured together) for five years, will step down from the team amid a shock sexting scandal
The lewd messages were sent on November 22 and 23, 2017, the eve and morning of the first Ashes Test at the Gabba in Brisbane.
Cricket Australia was not aware of the messages until after Paine was appointed Test captain in March 2018 in the wake of the ball tampering scandal.
Paine was brought it as the saviour of Australian cricket after captain Steve Smith and vice-captain David Warner were suspended.
Tim Paine’s lewd text exchange
PAINE: Partying like a rockstar. I like good girl… but this other one sounds interesting.
WOMAN: When I’m good I’m good. When I am bad I am brilliant.
PAINE: Brilliantly bad??
WOMAN: I will think naughty thoughts about you whilst we watch the TV.
PAINE: I’m cracking! Ha ha. Naughty thoughts like what? I’m about to give something firm a pull…
WOMAN: Ha, sorry I’m getting ready for work … it’s a big day for us kids.
PAINE: Will you want to taste my ***?? F*** me, I’m seriously hard.
WOMAN: I thought we were resting hands.
PAINE: Can’t rest them when I’m this hard!! Need to ease the tension … Finish me off with those lips then 😉
[Paine then sends a photo of his penis]
PAINE: Finish me off right now!!!
