Ahead of BBL 13, Tim Paine enters Adelaide Strikers as an assistant coach


Tim Paine, a former captain of Australia’s Test team, has accepted a position as assistant coach with Adelaide Strikers in time for the Big Bash League (BBL) 2023–24 season. Notably, the 13th season of the premier league will start on December 7 with a curtain-raiser match between Brisbane Heat and Melbourne Stars at Brisbane’s The Gabba.

For the uninitiated, after Tasmania’s Sheffield Shield Superior match against Queensland in March 2023, Paine announced his retirement. As he quickly expanded his portfolio and transitioned into coaching, Paine will now serve as Jason Gillespie’s assistant coach with Adelaide Strikers for the upcoming BBL season.

The new season’s arrival of Paine, who may aid the players and improve their play, has been welcomed by Strikers coach Gillespie.  Jason Gillespie has been reported by the sports information website stating, “The wealth of knowledge he will bring is guaranteed to improve our players in all parts of the game and offer more positive qualities to the way we play.

The 38-year-old keeper-batter has played in 154 First-class cricket games and amassed 6,490 runs, including 35 fifty-plus runs and three hundred.
