Tim Paine has revealed the upcoming Test series against Pakistan and New Zealand might be the last time he captains Australia at home. Paine, who will be 35 next month, was announced captain after former skipper Steve Smith was slapped with a one-year ban in March 2018 over a ball-tampering scandal in Cape Town Test. The wicketkeeper-batsman became the first Australian captain after Steve Waugh to retain the Ashes.
