Tim Paine, the former Australia captain, was out cheaply in his first match since a sexting scandal ended his international career, and his return failed to inspire Tasmania.

When lewd text messages he sent to a female colleague in 2017 were about to be made public, the 37-year-old resigned as Test captain on the eve of the Ashes campaign against England last November.

A week later, he announced his retirement from all forms of cricket for the “foreseeable future.”

“Physically, he is probably in the best shape of his physical career,” Vaughan said. He is emotionally stable.”

Paine strode to the crease against Queensland in the Sheffield Shield at Allan Border Field to a warm reception from a small crowd.

However, batting at number seven, the veteran wicketkeeper lasted only 19 balls for his six runs, edging a short-pitched delivery from Gurinder Sandhu to Matthew Renshaw at slip as Tasmania fell to 74-6.
