If I am not mistaken with the timeline, Tim Paine's wife was pregnant at the time of the "incident"?

As soon as Cricket Tasmania was made aware, it undertook an investigation that determined the interaction was consensual, private, occurred on the one occasion only, was between mature adults and was not repeated

so why has he stepped down? If it was consensual who cares

So, it's looking like the pic was originally consensual. The lady in question is now being sacked for stealing, and has decided to burn the place to the ground on her way out. Nobody is coming out of this looking good.

Paine is now known to have been having an affair (even if it was only a one-night-stand), while his newly married wife was pregnant.
Cricket Australia covered the whole thing up, appointing one problematic Captain to replace another they'd just sacked.
The female in question is now revealed to be gutter trash - a thief, who has decided to smear Paine for something she happily consented to 4 years ago.

Moral of the story: photos can hang around a lot longer than relationships, so when it comes to that kind of picks - just don't.

You have an affair whilst married (and with a pregnant wife to boot) you are playing Russian Roulette.

Just stupid to take a picture of your old fella. Feel free to do so but you then obviously have some issues.

What is most frustrating about the Tim Paine situation.

No doubt CA were aware of the matter prior to.appointing him as Captain and still went ahead if it knowing the risk of this matter eventually making the public forum, and also knowing the respect that we needed to regain after the sandpaper incident

They didn’t want another scandal on top of sandpapergate at the sametime. Much like us with the Adelaide Football Club.

Obviously, thought it would be better to look the other way.
