Paine broke his right index finger while batting in a Twenty20 match in late 2010 .As a brash young gloveman, Paine scored 287 runs and averaged 35.87 in his four tests in 2010 -- two in England against Pakistan and two in India where he scored 92 and 59 .He has played 26 ODs for Australia, averaging almost 30 with the bat, and 12 Twenty 20 internationals. In first-class cricket that started in 2005, though, he has played just 91 matches for 4,077 runs at an average of 29.12 and taken 252 catches and 11 stumpings.Peter Nevill averaged 22.28 and took 61 catches in his 17 tests matches across 2015-16 .Wade played 22 tests, averaging 28.58 across two stints that included a dozen tests in 2012 and '13, but he hasn't been scoring enough runs and selectors have run out of patience.Even after that, Paine said he wasn't expecting a recall.
