During the third Test, Tim Paine had taken a jibe at Rishabh Pant being dropped from the ODI squad after the inclusion of MS Dhoni. The Aussie captain also went on to ask the youngster if he can babysit Paine’s babies when he takes his wife for a 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 waterfront apartment. Have him over for dinner. Do you babysit? I can take my wife to the movies while you watch the kids," Paine had said to Rishabh as he had come to bat.” Tim Paine TAUNTS Rishabh Pant For Being Dropped From the ODI Squad During India vs Australia 2018, Day 3, MCG (Watch Video).
Now this incident was spoken about in media quite a number of times. Obviously the ICC was also in the know-how of the same and today poked fun at the Aussie captain as Rishabh Pant posed for a picture with Tim Paine’s wife Bonnie and his kids. ICC while sharing the picture said that Pant accepted the challenge. “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!* 👶 (📸 Mrs Bonnie Paine),” read ICC’s tweet.
