WATCH: Pant’s ‘babysitting’ video of Dhawan’s son goes viral
India’s young wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant got a catchy nickname- ‘babysitter’ particularly during India’s tour of Australia where Aussie Test skipper Tim Paine asked him to babysit his children, happened to be a part of sledging, during the series.
The incident hogged the limelight as Pant can be seen playing with teammate Shikhar Dhawan’s son Zoravar during the IPL game between KKR and DC- the ‘babysitting’ talks went viral on social media.
In a video which has gone viral on social media, Pant can be seen playing with Shikhar Dhawan’s son in a wild manner where Zoravar is trying his best to escape from Rishabh’s hands.
Many fans took to the micro-blogging Twitter platform and have tweeted the video by tagging Tim Paine, hinting him to think twice before he offers the babysitter’s role to Rishabh Pant again.
Here’s the video:

“I just try to keep my head clear and play according to the ball. (The plan) Take the game deep and complete the game as soon as possible. In T20, when you are chasing, you need to control and pace your innings in such a way that you could complete the match in 18-20 overs.
I don’t focus on what the bowlers are thinking. I just focus on my stuff. We (him and Dhawan) were just talking about taking the match deep. It was a fantastic pitch to bat on and in the end, we got it easily,” Pant said at the post-match presentation on Friday.
Delhi Capitals got the better of Kolkata Knight Riders to go fourth in the points table. They have managed to get four wins from seven games this season.
