Dean Jones blasts “desperate” wicketkeeping selection

Dean Jones has blasted the selection of Tim Paine as “desperate”.

Jones said the keeper’s selection doesn’t say much about Australia’s wicket-keeping stocks.

“Paine’s had one first-class hundred in 154 innings,” he said.

“It reeks of desperation to me. They’re trying to pull a rabbit out of a hat.”

Jones said the selection of Paine spells the end of Matthew Wade’s Test career.

Dwayne: So you think Wade should give up on playing for Australia?

Deano: Pretty much.

Jones said he doesn’t mind the recall of Shaun Marsh, an experienced player, for the Ashes.

He tipped Australia to win the series 3-1.
