The ongoing Test series between India and Australia has seen its fair share of sledging and rival wicketkeepers Tim Paine and Rishabh Pant were in the thick of it during the Boxing Day Test in Melbourne.

While batting, Pant was constantly sledged by the Australian skipper who asked the youngster if he can do babysitting when he takes his wife for a movie.

While Pant kept quiet then, he gave it back to Paine when the Aussie skipper was batting in the final innings. He gave the Aussie a taste of his own medicine, mocking him by calling a 'temporary captain' who only does 'talking'.

But after the banter, Pant actually turned babysitter. Paine's wife Bonnie shared a photo on social media, in which Pant can be seen holding one of her kids. Bonnie also captioned Pant the 'best babysitter’.

India are leading the four-match series 2-1 and will be aiming to secure a maiden Test series Down Under when they clash with the Aussies in the final Test in Sydney from Thursday.
