During the third Test between India and Australia in Melbourne in December 2018, we saw India wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant and Australia Test skipper Tim Paine engage in a friendly banter with the latter asking Pant if he would act as a babysitter while the Aussie wicketkeeper and his wife Bonnie went out for a movie.
And on New Year’s day, the duo made the headlines once again, when Bonnie posted a picture of Pant with her babies calling Pant as ‘Best Babysitter.’
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?"
*Challenge accepted!* 👶

And Pant seems to love his job! After a Dhawan-Pant show stole the match from the hosts Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Eden Gardens on Friday, Pant was spotted having a gala time with Shikhar’s son Zoravar.
Pant and Dhawan added a 105-run stand to hand Delhi a seven-wicket victory.
Here’s the video:
