India vs Australia Test Series is done and over with the visiting team scripting history with a heroic 2-1 victory Down Under. However, the chatter around Rishabh Pant being a babysitter hasn’t refused to douse. While opening another chapter in the saga, it was Rohit Sharma who asked the 21-year-old to babysit her newly-born daughter.
However, it was Pant’s cheeky response that left people on social media in a laugh. The Indian wicketkeeper-batsman replied to Rohit’s request, taking a humorous jibe at Yuzvendra Chahal.
When asked to babysit by Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant replied, “@ImRo45 Hahhaa… Bhaiya @yuzi_chahal not doing his job properly? More than happy to babysit Samaira Congratulations @ritssajdeh.”

It first began during the third Test match at Melbourne. Australian captain Tim Paine, while sledging Rishabh Pant, had said that since MS Dhoni is back in the ODI squad, maybe Pant would be free to babysit, while he took his wife for a movie. The sledge saw Pant retaliate with a ‘temporary captain’ jibe at the Australian wicketkeeper-batsman.

Will it be an end to the ‘Rishabh Pant Babysitting Saga’ or will Yuzvendra Chahal fire another salvo?
