Jaffer jokingly remarked that Indian wicket-keepers are always “reliable babysitters”.

Wasim Jaffer’s comment was the reference to the banter between wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant and Australia Test skipper, Tim Paine during India’s 2018-19 tour of Australia. Stump microphones had caught Paine sledging Pant by asking the Indian keeper to babysit his children.

Pant had visited Paine’s wife and children after the Melbourne Test of 2018, the match where Paine and Pant were heard having some colorful conversations. Wasim Jaffer recalled that incident and tweeted: “See KL holding baby Agastya there. Indian WK bats are always reliable babysitters.”


India players and support staff had some light moments off the field as seen in the picture posted by Shastri.

Captioning the picture featuring the players like Krunal Pandya, Shardul Thakur, Rahul, Virat Kohli, Yuzvendra Chahal, Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant, and Hardik Pandya, Shastri wrote: “The pack that stays together. Bubble or no bubble. Results will come and go for others to follow. Great day in lovely Pune.”
