Paine asked Pant if he can babysit to sledge him

In the recent Test series between Australia and India, Aussie skipper Tim Paine tried to sledge Indian wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant and during that incident, he has asked Pant if he can babysit.

When the Indian batsman was at the crease, the Aussie captain said to Aaron Finch who was fielding close-by that if Big MS [Dhoni] is back in the India one-day squad, they might get Pant down to the Hobart Hurricanes as they need a batter.

To this, Finch replied that not if he keeps blocking them.

Paine continued the conversation by saying to Pant that he can extend a nice Aussie holiday. Beautiful town, Hobart, too. He added that they can get him a nice apartment on the waterfront.

The highlight of Paine’s conversation came when he asked Pant whether he babysits. The Aussie cricketer told Pant that he will take his wife to the movies one night and Pant can babysit.
