The ongoing Test series between India and Australia has seen its fair share of sledging and one of the best instances took place between Tim Paine and Rishabh Pant during the Boxing Day Test in Melbourne.

While batting, Rishabh Pant was constantly sledged by the Australia skipper who asked the youngster if he can do babysitting when he (Paine) takes his wife for the movie.

“Tell you what big MS is back in the one day squad. Should get this bloke down to Hurricanes.. They need a batter. Fancy that extend you Aussie holiday, beautiful town Hobart too... get him a water front apartment. Have him over for dinner. Do you babysit? I can take my wife to the movies while you watch the kids,” Paine said.
