India’s wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant has had a cracker of a Test series against Australia and his all-new dance on the ‘babysitter’ song is a cherry on top.
Pant recently climbed 21 places up to the 17th spot in the ICC Test rankings for batsmen after his unbeaten 159 against Australia in Sydney, and a total of 350 runs in the four-match series. The 21-year-old’s aggregate of 673 rating points is also the joint highest by an India wicket-keeper, former India legend Farokh Engineer achieved the same in January 1973.
Apart from his valuable contribution to the team, Pant’s on-field banters with the Australian skipper Tim Paine became the highlight of the Test series. Ahead of the final Test in Sydney, Pant literally turned into a babysitter for the Paine family.
On Monday, after Team India scripted history, winning the Test series 2-1, Pant was seen dancing to the ‘babysitter’ song created by The Bharat Army. The Indian keeper, who was in a celebratory mood, even devised his own steps to go with the song.
Here’s the video:

‘We’ve got Pant
I just don’t think you’ll understand
He’ll hit you for a six
He’ll babysit your kids
We’ve got Rishab Pant’
