Timothy David Paine (born 8 December 1984 in Hobart, Tasmania), is an Australian cricketer who plays for the Tasmanian Tigers in Australian domestic cricket and for the University of Tasmania Cricket Club in club cricket. He is a right-handed batsman and wicket-keeper, as well as a right arm bowler at junior level. As with most wicket-keepers, Paine is primarily a middle-order batsman in First-class cricket, and an opening batsman in List A and Twenty20 cricket.

A product of the Australian Cricket Academy, Paine became the youngest-ever contracted player in Australia, when he received a rookie contract with Tasmania at 16 years of age. He made both his First-class and one-day debuts for Tasmania in 2005; scoring a one-day century later in the 2005–06 season, and a first-class hundred, 215, in the next. He was a part of the state's maiden Sheffield Shield (then the Pura Cup) season victory that season and also their 2007–08 one-day winning side. Paine made his ODI debut for Australia as a replacement for regular wicket-keeper Brad Haddin in 2009 against England, and in the series' sixth match, he scored his maiden international century. A further injury to Haddin in 2010 paved the way for Paine's Test debut against Pakistan in England. Soon after, he played in another two Tests against India, before Haddin's recovery for the 2010–11 Ashes series.
