It’s been a long time since I followed the cricket, or any sport really. Writing about it up close as a correspondent for Inside Sport kinda put me off. Enough that until this week I couldn’t have told you who Tim Paine was. Well, now I know.
He’s the guy who sent the dick pic. And, like, the Aussie cricket captain or something.
But I’ll always think of him as ‘that dick pic guy’.
I’m guessing that didn’t occur to him as he dropped pants and focussed his phone on the middle stump.
I’m honestly at loss to understand what goes through any bloke’s mind at that point. Other than for medical purposes why would you ever do that? It’s not like it’s ever going to make a pretty picture.
