Tim Paine is doing a great job as captain: Justin Langer

Australian Head Coach, Justin Langer commended the role of Tim Paine in Australia’s leadership in the Test matches. The head coach said that Tim Paine is doing a wonderful job as the Australian Test captain.

"Tim Paine is doing a brilliant job at the moment, he's been outstanding in his time as captain," Langer told local News outlet. "However long he wants to keep playing for, that's another thing. I'm sure, like all these things, it'll get worked out when the timing's right.

"The beauty of Tim Paine is he will keep getting better. Even at his age, with his youthful enthusiasm, he's got lots of areas he can improve, and that's heartening for him and for us. At the moment, he's doing a great job" he further added.

Paine initially struggled with the leadership role when Australia lost to Pakistan in U.A.E, followed by a humiliating series defeat against India at home, but the redemption period which started with a 2-0 victory against Sri Lanka, got him right on the track. The recent Ashes series was a great tour for the young captain as Australia managed to retain the title in the foreign lands.
