Australian cricket captain, Tim Paine quits after the married father-of-two was caught 'sending a female co-worker a lewd photo'


Tim Paine has stepped down as captain of the Australia Test team less than three weeks before The Ashes over a sexting exchange with a former colleague.



The 36-year-old had been expected to lead his side in the series against England which starts in Brisbane on December 8, but made the "incredibly difficult decision" to leave the role.



The married father-of-two young children was investigated by Cricket Australia in 2018 after the woman complained about him.



Paine reportedly sent a photo of his penis to the 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.







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 is believed to have found out about the sexting in June 2018 and launched an investigation, along with Cricket Tasmania.







The woman complained in 2018 about 'Mr Paine's sexually explicit, unwelcome and unsolicited photograph of his genitals in addition to the graphic sexual comments'.



She is said to have been taken aback by the comments and pornographic photo, which she found offensive.Latest Post
