Proud father and batsman Rohit Sharma on Wednesday asked wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant to babysit his little daughter Samaira.
Replying to Pant’s ‘Good Morning’ post on Twitter, the Hitman wrote, “Morning buddy. Heard you’re a good baby sitter, need one right now. Ritika will be quite happy @RishabPant777.”

During the Melbourne Test, when Australia captain Tim Paine offered Pant to babysit his kids during their sledging session, nobody would have ever thought that this could be true. The on-field banter was taken way too seriously by Paine’s wife Bonnie as she posted a picture captioned “Best Babysitter” of the Indian wicket-keeper with her kids.
On the Australian soil, Pant ended the five-Test series as the second-highest run-scorer after Cheteshwar Pujara, notching 350 runs in seven innings. While behind the stumps, he broke the record for most catches (20) by an Indian wicket-keeper in a Test series.
