Tim Paine sexting scandal: Before the Ashes series against England starting next month, Australian Test team captain Tim Paine has made a big scandal. Tim Paine has been implicated in a sexting scandal, which is four years old. For this reason he had to leave the captaincy. Even his playing in the Ashes series due to this scandal seems impossible at the moment. This was announced by Cricket Australia itself and captain Tim Paine through a press conference on Friday.
Tim Paine has decided to step down as Test captain after he misbehaved with a former Tasmania cricket co-worker. Tim Paine appeared emotional during his resignation, saying, “Today, I decide to step down from the captaincy of the Australia men’s Test team. It’s an incredibly difficult decision, but one that’s right for me, my family and cricket.” “
He also explained why he had to resign. Describing his scandal, “As a background to my decision, about four years ago, I was involved in a text exchange with a then colleague. At the time, the exchange was the subject of a thorough Cricket Australia Integrity Unit investigation into I participated fully and openly.”
He explained, “That investigation and a Cricket Tasmania HR investigation at the same time found that there was no breach of Cricket Australia’s code of conduct. Although I was acquitted, I deeply regret the incident at the time, and today I spoke to my wife and family at that time and am very grateful for their forgiveness and support. We thought this incident was behind us and I could focus entirely on the team, as I did in the past. for three or four years.”
He continued, “However, I recently learned that this private text exchange is going to go public. Considering my actions in 2017 do not meet the standards of the Australian cricket captain or the wider community. “Deeply sorry for the pain caused to the family and others. I am sorry for any damage this may have caused to the reputation of our sport.”
“I believe it is the right decision for me to step down as captain with immediate effect. I don’t want it to become an unwanted disruption to the team ahead of a big Ashes series. I have worked as the captain of the Australian cricket team.” I have loved my role as a team. Leading Australia’s Test team has been one of the greatest privileges of my sporting life. I am grateful for the support of my teammates and proud of what we have been able to do.”Tim Paine said,

What is the whole matter related to Tim Paine-
Married and father of three children, Tim Paine has sent some such pictures to his female co-worker, which cannot be justified from any point of view. It is being told that Tip Pen has sent a picture of his private part to a woman working together. Apart from this, dirty messages have also been sent, which would be very wrong to write here. This is the reason why Tim Paine can be stripped of the captaincy and he can be dropped from the Ashes series. There has been no official statement from Cricket Australia on this yet.
