India and Australia are all set for two-Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) and five One-Day Internationals (ODIs) that will start from February 24, 2019. Ahead of the match, an advertisement has been released by the channel in which we can see former Indian cricketer, Virender Sehwag babysitting kids who are wearing Australian jerseys. It is kind of a funny dig at Australians that for Indian team they are like kids. But looks like former Australian cricketer Matthew Hayden isn’t much happy with the advertisement.
In the advertisement, Sehwag is seen saying, "Jab hum Australia gaye the, toh unhone poocha tha babysitting karoge? Humne kahaa sabke sab aajaao. Zaroor karenge." Hayden took to Twitter to taunt Sehwag and warned him that never take Australians for a joke. Hayden’s tweet received backlash and Twitterati started commenting that Hayden should take the advertisement sportingly and not get so serious about it.
By the way, the idea behind the advertisement seems to be coming from the banter between Rishabh Pant and skipper Tim Paine. It was last year when Tim Paine asked Rishabh Pant to babysit his kids during the Boxing Day Test in Melbourne. The banter between the two became the talk of the town.
