Indian cricketers’ newfound love for babysitting seems to have no boundaries. We are yet to get over Rishabh Pant’s ‘surprising’ yet impressive babysitting ability. Now, veteran cricketer Virendra Sehwag has jumped into the bandwagon, only to pay tribute to Pant. Ahead of the India VS Australia two-Twenty20 Internationals (T201s), in a hilarious commercial launched by the makers, Virendra Sehwag could be seen babysitting kids that wore Australian jerseys. While the advertisement has managed to stir frenzy throughout, the most-impressed person is the popular babysitter, Rishabh Pant.
In a response to the commercial video shared by Star Sports’ official account, Pant quote retweeted and expressed his happiness. He thanked Virendra Sehwag for showing him on how to be better at cricketing as well as babysitting. It was during the India VS Australia tour, when Pant’s banter with Australian skipper Tim Paine and his wife Bonnie, made it to the headlines. The cricketer was challenged to babysit their kids so that they go for a movie day, and he absolutely nailed it!
While Pant’s skills impressed many, Virendra Sehwag’s advert didn’t really go well with the Aussies. Former Australian cricketer, Mathew Hayden was visibly irked as he took to his Twitter and warned Sehwag to never take the Australians for a joke. OOPS!
