Rishabh Pant has gained quite a cult following after quite a successful tour of Australia where he was impeccable with the bat as well as behind the stumps. But what gained him great infamy was his back and forth banter with various Australian players, especially his Aussie wicketkeeping counterpart Tim Paine.
In a brilliant jibe, Paine had asked Pant whether he could babysit his kids in Hobart so that he could take his wife out for the movies. Pant duly obliged when he clicked a photo with Paine’s kids and his wife Bonnie, attempting to babysit their kids when both the team paid a visit to the Australian Prime Minister’s house before the Sydney Test.
Tim Paine to @RishabPant777 at Boxing Day Test: "You babysit? I'll take the wife to the movies one night, you'll look after the kids?"

Pant has now forever gotten the tag of ‘Babysitter’ etched next to his name and many of his teammates have now taken to troll the Delhi-based wicketkeeper-batsman.
Rohit Sharma has joined the long list of people trying to troll Pant with a brilliant tweet. Rohit recently became the proud father of a baby girl with his wife Ritika and the Mumbai-dasher is now on the lookout for a babysitter. In Pant, he believes he may have found a perfect replacement.

To this Pant had a brilliant response as well, blaming Yuzvendra Chahal who is a close friend of Rohit for not doing his job well enough.

Some brilliant banter on Twitter from the Indian players who are undoubtedly on cloud nine after their maiden Test series victory on Australian soil.
