Ahead of Australia tour to India which concluded with the visitors winning the ODI series 3-2, the official broadcasters in India, Start Sports created a funny commercial as a build-up of the series. However, the babysitting commercial featuring former Indian opener, Virender Sehwag seems to have come back to haunt the Indian team in their series loss.
In the series-decider at the Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi, India lost the game by 35 runs. The Australian opener, Usman Khawaja bagged the Man of the Series, but what happened on the social media was something different. Start Sports promoted the series with the ‘babysitting’ ad where Sehwag was seen carrying Australian kids to show that they are a weaker unit. Now, it seems Twitterati has not forgotten it and are mocking it on the social platform.
Here is how Star Sports was trolled after India’s loss:

Dear @StarSportsIndia, next time you plan baby sitting type ad. Pleas think over. Band bajayenge in 2012, Mauka mauka in 2015 and now baby sitting. It has backfired everytime you try to belittle the opposition. #INDvAUS

Ahead of Australia’s tour to India for two T20I and five ODIs, none of the Indian fans would’ve even dreamt that the men in blue will find it difficult to win even three games out of those seven. After losing the T20I series 2-0, India lost the ODI series as well by a 2-3 margin despite the fact that they were 2-0 up in the series after the first two ODIs.

After losing the Mohali ODI against Australia, Team India was in a desperate need of the win as the series is leveled at 2-2 after the fourth ODI. The series-decider is currently being played at Delhi. After winning the toss, the Australian skipper, Aaron Finch decided to bat first and even the Indian skipper, Virat Kohli wanted to do the same. However, now the hosts needed 273 runs to seal the series but they got bundled out for 237 runs.
