Tim Has Done A Wonderful Job In A Time That Was Very Ordinary- Trevor Hohns Supports Tim Paine's Captaincy

Former Australian chief selector Trevor Hohns explained the impact Tim Paine has had in the team as a captain during the struggling time of the Sandpaper incident and felt the criticism has been unfair. Tim Paine’s captaincy has been under scrutiny after the Australian side lost the home series 1-2 to India recently at the start of the year.

This was the second consecutive defeat for Australia against India at their home under Tim Paine’s captaincy and it has raised a lot of questions over his leadership skills. Paine tried to dislodge the Indian batsmen’s minds verbally during the Sydney test and Sunil Gavaskar wasn’t pleased with the Australian skipper’s actions.

Paine Was Unfairly Criticised For His On-Field Captaincy, Feels Trevor Hohns

Trevor Hohns mentioned that Tim Paine had done a wonderful job so far to rebuild the side after the incidents that happened in South Africa. He added that Paine’s tactics against India received a hit but felt that every captain goes through those bad times. He concluded that the criticism over Paine’s on-field captaincy has been unfair so far.

“Tim’s done a wonderful job in a time that was very ordinary. To take over and try to get the public back on side. He copped a bit of flak last year for his tactics against India. Captains do have bad days from time to time, so I thought he was unfairly criticised for his on-field captaincy,” Trevor Hohns told to the Age.

Trevor Hons Feels Coach Shouldn’t Take The Extra Powers Of A Selector

The Australian head coach Justin Langer has been facing a lot of criticism for their recent performances and Trevor Hons opined on that as well. He mentioned that an ideal coach shouldn’t require the powers of a selector and he can gain the respect of the players without involving in the selection of those players.

“If a coach needs that extra power in the dressing room, well I think that’s a no-no. I used to always think it worked better if the coach wasn’t a selector.

“At the moment I’m more like 50-50 on it, but you need to have the right individual if you’re going to have the coach as a selector, and the coach shouldn’t need that extra power to gain the respect of his players,” Trevor Hohns concluded.
