48 SPORT SUNDAY NOVEMBER 21 2021 NTNE01Z01MA - V1 SVG WEAVES HIS MAGIC IN SYDNEY TO BE ON CUSP OF TITLE P44 AUSSIE cricketing legend Shane Warne is adamant Tim Paine needs to move on. In an exclusive column for News Corp, spin great Warne writes that Paine (pictured) did his job to help Australia rebound from the infamous Sandpapergate drama. But Warne says in the wake of the Test skipper standing down on Friday over a sexting scandal, his spot in the national side ahead of the Ashes series is now untenable. It was sad to see what happened last Friday on so many levels and the circumstances in which Tim was forced to stand down, Warne writes. But even before the revelations, it ITS SIMPLY TIME TO GO Aussie great Warne adamant Paine shouldnt play in first Ashes Test was becoming clear that hed done his job as a good spokesman for the team, and his spot was already starting to look a bit shaky. For me the time is right to make Pat Cummins captain, something I thought even before the events of Friday unfolded. And either Matt Wade, Josh Inglis or Alex Carey should get their chance to come in and play Paines role in the Test team. Tim has thought of the team, been unselfish, by standing down now. But, as Ive said, its time to move on.

Nikita Tszyu, the younger brother of boxing superstar Tim, has signed a fight contract to turn professional early next year. Six years after stepping away from boxing, Nikita, 23, plans to emulate Tim and their father, Kostya. I want to achieve that greatness, he said. Nikita has signed with manager Glen Jennings, who oversaw Kostyas career and is now in charge of Tims campaign to be a world champion. His older brother, who comprehensively defeated Takeshi Inoue last Wednesday night to move to 20-0 (15 KO) as a pro and is on the verge of fighting for the WBO super-welterweight title next year, has no doubt Nikita can cut a similar path. Nikita will fight in the same 68.85kg weight division as Tim. Nikita is a natural lion, hes got animal instinct in him, Tim Tszyu, 27, said. A supremely talented amateur who won multiple national titles, Nikita was seen by many as the Tszyu son who would go on to achieve glory in the ring. However, he made the choice in 2015 to step away from the sweet science to focus on his education. After completing a degree in architecture, and living the party lifestyle, Nikita is ready to follow his older brother. Im actually very fortunate that I went through that stage because I got it out of my system, Nikita said. Now I have my head clear and I know exactly what I want, I want to achieve that greatness.
