Indian wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant has now been labelled as a ‘baby sitter’ since Australia skipper Tim Paine invited the 21-year-old to babysit his children during the Boxing Day Test in Melbourne.
The banter, however, does not stop there. It was Rohit Sharma who decided to take a friendly jibe at his teammate, inviting him to babysit his newly born daughter, Samaira.
Rohit became a father on December 31, but couldn’t attend the birth of his daughter as he was on national duty in Australia. He immediately flew down to India, hence missed the fourth and final Test in Sydney.
Here’s what Rohit had to say to Rishabh:
‘Morning buddy. Heard your a good baby sitter, need one right now. Ritika will be quite happy @RishabPant777’, Rohit wrote.

Meanwhile, Ritika very recently had posted a hilarious reply up her sleeve to Rohit’s tweet and mentioned that she won’t mind using Pant.
She took to Twitter and wrote, “could definitely use one @RishabPant777 @ImRo45.”

Earlier, Pant took the Australian skipper’s words quite seriously and actually spent time with Bonnie Paine and kids in Sydney ahead of the final Test.
