Rohit Sharma asks babysitter Rishabh Pant if hes free to help wife Ritika Sajdeh

New Delhi, Jan 9: The on-field banter between Australia captain Tim Paine and India wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant was one of the highlights of the recently concluded Test series between the two teams.

During the Boxing Day Test in Melbourne, the stump mic caught a hilarious banter between Paine and Pant. While referring to Pant's omission from the ODI side, Paine asked the Indian cricketer if he'll babysit his kids.

The funny banter which continued all through the series tickled the funny bones of the audiences and it turned out to be one of the favourite topics during the Test series. The broadcasters would turn on the stump mic whenever these two players were present into the middle.

Later, during the New Year lunch at Australian PM's official residence, Paine's wife Bonnie posted a picture of Pant holding her son Sam in his hands and captioned it 'Best Babysitter'.

"Big MS (Dhoni) is back in the one-day squad too, we might get him (Pant) down to the (Hobart) Hurricanes... we need a batter. Fancy that, Pantsy? Extend your little Aussie holiday. Beautiful town Hobart too, I'll get you a nice apartment on the waterfront. (I'll) have him over for dinner. Can you babysit? I'll take the wife to the movies one night and you'll look after the kids," the Australian captain was heard saying on the stump mic.

After Paine, it is India's limited-overs vice captain, Rohit Sharma, who has engaged in a banter with southpaw and sought the help of 'baby sitter' Pant.

"Morning buddy. Heard your a good baby sitter, need one right now. Ritika will be quite happy 😃 @RishabPant777," wrote Rohit on his Twitter handle.

Apparently, Rohit was replying to a new picture posted by Pant on his Twitter handle.

Pant comes up with a witty response

Pant didn't delay and responded Rohit in an even funny tweet asking if their teammate Yuzvendra Chahal isn't performing his duties well.

"@ImRo45 Hahhaa.. Bhaiya @yuzi_chahal not doing his job properly?🤪 More than happy to babysit Samaira 🤗 Congratulations @ritssajdeh," replied Pant.

Rohit-Ritika introduce their daughter to their fans

Rohit and his wife Ritika Sajdeh became proud parents of a baby girl last week. The couple has named the newborn Samaira. Rohit skipped the fourth and final Test match in Sydney and returned home to be with his wife and daughter.

The Mumbaikar later posted an image with his wife and daughter on Twitter and introduced the newly born with his followers.

Later, Ritika too joined the banter and said she wouldn't mind Pant lending his hands.
