Congrats to Aust & both teams for a terrific test series so far – well done. Loved it all. That’s the best test win for Aust in a long time. Tim Paine take a bow – we now have a test captain ! Lyon & Khawaja outstanding. Finch & Harris 0/100 on day 1 was the difference !!— Shane Warne (@ShaneWarne) December 18, 2018

My player of the match is Nathan Lyon but I would look at Tim Paine too. My highlight of the game was an unforgettable century from Virat Kohli.— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) December 18, 2018

What a joke: do Aussies like the abusive Rowdy Bully Tim Paine? https://t.co/MOcgI7yY08— Mohandas Pai (@TVMohandasPai) December 18, 2018
I’m the best player in the world and you’re just a stand in captain.— Prajakta Bhawsar (@ViratsFangirl18) December 18, 2018
Firstly, nobody is sure whether he actually said this or no.
Secondly, what wrong did he say?
What is wrong in it?
He is the best player currently and Tim Paine is the stand – in captain
Quality performance from Australia this week … Tim Paine is a very very good leader who deserves all the credit … India got it wrong at the start with the wrong team .. @imjadeja should have played .. Great Test Match to cover on @FoxCricket .. #AUSvIND #1-1— Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) December 18, 2018

Tim Paine just lighting up the Indian batsman behind the stumps is all time.. “I know he’s your captain, but surely you don’t like the bloke?” 😂😂👍🏻👍🏻— Scott McLaughlin (@smclaughlin93) December 17, 2018
Virat Kohli to Tim Paine On day three:— Jinx King 🇿🇦🔥 (@billz_25) December 17, 2018
“I’m the best player in the world and you’re just a stand in captain,” he said.
Losing all respect for Kohli to be honest. One of the best players in the world if not the best and I love watching him but his personality is ruining it..
