Alex Carey Replaces Tim Paine As Australian Wicketkeeper For Ashes

Alex Carey Australia’s wicketkeeper was named for the first two Ashes Tests against England on Thursday, after scandal-plagued former skipper, Tim Paine stepped down.


  • Alex Carey has been named as Australia’s wicketkeeper for the first two Ashes Tests.
  • Bailey says Carey “will bring many great strength into the team.”
  • Alex Carey says “Incredibly humbled by this opportunity”

The 30-year-old has represented Australia in limited-overs cricket and served as the one-day captain in the West Indies this year, but has yet to play in a Test match. After being added to the 15-man team, that will alter in Brisbane next week.

George Bailey, the chief selector said:

“Alex has been a regular member of the national squad in white-ball cricket, notably in one-day cricket,”

“He is a fantastic cricketer and a wonderful person who will contribute a lot to the squad.”

Alex Carey and fellow gloveman Josh Inglis were largely viewed as a toss-up for the post

But Inglis returned home to Perth this week, and the writing was on the wall.

“This chance has humbled me tremendously.” “It’s a thrilling build-up to what promises to be a great season,” Carey added.

“This is also for my father, who has been my coach, mentor, and friend, as well as my mother, wife Eloise, children Louis and Clementine, my brother and sister, and everyone who has helped me.”

“I will do all in my power to make them and our country proud.”

Carey chosen after Paine resigned as Test captain and then retires from cricket last week due to a text-message scandal, leaving selectors looking for a replacement ahead of the first Test on December 8.

While Carey left out of Australia’s World Cup-winning T20 squad in favor of Inglis, he has playing plenty of domestic red-ball cricket in recent weeks.
