Australia Test captain Tim Paine ends 13-year wait for second first-class century

Australia Test captain Tim Paine has scored his next outstanding hundred – 13 years after his first.
Since he passed three figures against exactly the opposition to the first time as 2006 the 34-year-old hit 121 for Tasmania from Western Australia in The WACA at the Sheffield Shield.
Paine struck 215 at The WACA 13 years back in what had been his fifth first-class game but had to wait patiently till his 125th match – and a days – to score the next century.
Present Australia coach Justin Langer had been opening the batting for Western Australia when Paine notched his maiden first-class hundred.
After the five-match series ended 2-2 paine captained Australia against England.
He averaged just 20 and passed fifty just after in 10 innings, hitting 58.
David Warner fared much worse from the Ashes, averaging 9.50 after scoring just 95 runs in 10 knocks, like three studs in a row, but returned to form this week using 125 to New South Wales against Queensland.
But Steve Smith, that handled 774 runs in seven Ashes innings in 110.57 and just failed to pass fifty once, was out for a duck in exactly the exact same match.
