Tim Paine had asked Rishabh Pant to babysit his kids while he was away with Mrs. Paine. The on-field banter was completed when the Indian wicketkeeper batsman actually got himself clicked with Paine’s kids and wife during Team India’s visit to Australia’s Prime Minister House.
Keeping this hilarious episode alive, Star Sports, the official broadcaster of the upcoming T20 and ODI series between India and Australia, came up with a new advertisement featuring Virender Sehwag. The former Indian opener is seen playing with kids, who have been dressed in the Australian jersey as he says: “Jab hum Australia gaye the, toh unhone poocha tha babysitting karoge? Humne kahaa sabke sab aajaao. Zaroor karenge.”
Rishabh Pant gave his reaction on the TV commercial for the upcoming India-Australia limited overs series.
“Viru paaji showing me how to be better at cricket and babysitting — an inspiration always! @StarSportsIndia @virendersehwag,” he wrote.
