The babysitting advertisement which is regarding the upcoming limited-overs series between India and Australia at home, has not gone down well with Matthew Hayden. The TV commercial features Virender Sehwag who is seen playing with the bunch of babies donning the Australian jersey. The commercial has annoyed Hayden so much that he took to Twitter and has warned the former Indian cricketer to not take the Aussies as a joke. He also reminded Sehwag that the Australian team are the World Cup champs. India vs Australia 2019: Star Sports’ New Ad Takes a Jibe At Tim Paine’s Baby-Sitting Comment; Virender Sehwag Turns a Hilarious Babysitter.

The Australians are coming to India for a couple of T20I and five ODI games. The official broadcaster has already started promoting the tournament and the commercial is a jibe at Tim Paine’s babysitting comment to Rishabh Pant when India toured Down Under. The statement from the Australian captain grabbed headlines in the newspapers and the video of the funny banter also went viral on social media. Australia Tour of India 2019 Schedule Free PDF Download Online: IND vs AUS Full Timetable With Match Dates, Fixture Timings and Venue Details.

Talking about Hayden, he retweeted Sehwag and shot back, “#BeWarned  Never take Aussie’s for a joke Viru Boy @virendersehwag @StarSportsIndia Just remember who’s baby sitting the #WorldCup trophy.”

The babysitting incident happened during the third Test between India and Australia. It was Rishabh Pant who had called Paine a temporary captain and Paine in response to the comment asked the Indian wicket-keeper to babysit his kids as he takes his wife for a movie.

The first T20I game will begin on February 24, 2019, and will be hosted at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. The second T20 game will be held on February 27 in Visakhapatnam. The ODI series will begin on March 2.
