The young Indian wicket-keeper, Rishabh Pant was seen dancing and applauding the Bharat Army for their efforts as they sang him a song dedicated to his six-hitting abilities at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG). Inspired by the banter between Rishabh Pant and Tim Paine when the latter took the babysitting jibe, the Bharat Army came up with a song as Pant played a scintillating knock of 159* in Sydney.

Rishabh finished as the second highest run scorer in the series behind Cheteshwar Pujara and was instrumental in a historic series win for India. Surprisingly for the fans, he had scored more runs than the Indian skipper Virat Kohli. Pant’s ‘commentary’ from behind the stumps also succeeded in entertaining the audiences around the world as they hooked on to the action from Australia.

There were times when the broadcasters would ask their commentators to stop talking so the world could hear Pant speak. And when Paine asked Pant if he could babysit his kids while he took his wife out to a movie, the ‘war’ of words became more intense and funny as well.

Pant then hit back at Paine and called him a temporary captain who could only talk. The two seemed to have to enjoy the wordplay as Rishabh later agreed to pose for a photograph with Mrs. Paine and the kids at the Australian Prime Minister’s house on New Year’s day.

Here is the video of Pant dancing on Bharat army’s song on him:

Pant’s sensational form during the Australia series saw him break MS Dhoni’s record in the ICC Test rankings for batsmen. He won’t be featuring in the three-match ODI series against Australia and will return to India where he will get to enjoy a short break before joining India A squad for a five match one-day series against England Lions starting January 23.
