After Matthew Hayden now Indian cricketer Rishabh Pant has replied to Virender Sehwag’s ‘babysitting’ advertisement. Rishabh Pant was at the centre of the babysitting banter that took place in Australia.
Rishabh Pant took to his official Twitter handle to react to the advertisement, Pant tweeted, ““Viru paaji showing me how to be better at cricket and babysitting — an inspiration always! @StarSportsIndia @virendersehwag.”
In the video Sehwag is taking jibe at Australian Test captain Tim Paine’s ‘babysitting’ comment during India’s tour of Australia. The babysitter joke was part of on-field banter between Rishabh Pant and Tim Paine.
“Tell you what, big MS (Dhoni) is back in the one day squad too, we might get him down to the (Hobart) Hurricanes this bloke, we need a batter. Fancy that Pant, extend your little Aussie holiday. Beautiful town Hobart too. Get you a nice apartment on the water front. Have him over for dinner. Can you babysit? (Can I) take the wife to the movies one night, you can look after the kids?” Paine said.
During a lunch program organised by Australian Prime Minister, Tim Paine’s wife Bonnie met Rishabh Pant and called him the “best babysitter” in her Instagram story.
Australia’s tour of India will start from February 24 with both the teams playing two T20Is, followed by five ODIs.
