So far in the series, one of the most engaging things in the game is the words behind the stumps by the wicket-keepers of both teams. This becomes more vigorous in the third Test.

During the fourth day, Indian wicket-keeper Rishab Pant mocked the Australian skipper Tim Paine as the temporary captain behind the stumps when he came into bat.

“We’ve got a special guest today…..have you heard of a temporary captain ever ? You don’t need anything to get him out boys. He loves to talk, that’s the only thing he can do, only talking talking

On day 3 when Rishab Pant came into bat, Tim Paine offered a BBL contract and baby sitter job for Rishabh Pant behind the stumps. It seems like, the Indian wicket-keeper is giving his reply to the Australian captain.
