AUS v IND 2018-19: WATCH- Tim Paine invites Rishabh Pant to play in BBL, now that MS Dhoni is back in ODI team

Paine has been good with his banters from behind the stumps lately.

When Tim Paine was batting amid of huge crisis for Australia, Indian wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant was murmuring behind the stumps to unsettle the Australian captain.

Australia was bowled out on just 151, and when India decided not to enforce the follow-on and come back to bat, Paine treated Pant the same way he did, probably even more brutally. 

India, in the second innings, lost wickets in the cluster and they were 5 down on 47 when Pant was in middle. Paine, trying to get into the nerves of the Indian wicket-keeper batsman, reminded him that MS Dhoni is back into the T20I side and he will probably have to leave wicket-keeping for the veteran.

However, good for Pant, he didn't react on the next ball and tried to focus on the game. With a spinner bowling, the youngster could have fallen for it.

This is what Paine told Pant: "Tell you what big MS is back in the one-day squad. Should get this bloke down to Hobart Hurricanes.. They need a batter."

He continued, "Fancy that extends you Aussie holiday, beautiful town Hobart too... get him a waterfront apartment"

"Have him over for dinner. Do you babysit? I can take my wife to the movies while you watch the kids."

India ended the third day with 54/5. But they have a huge lead of 346 runs. There are still two days left in the game and batting in the fourth innings will get tougher. India has the upper hand in the match.
