India playing with top sides in the whites are always a classic encounter and the current series is no different. Technology has gone a far ahead and given us the blessing of stumps mic. For India Rishabh Pant was doing the teasing work and today at MCG it was Australia’s captain Tim Paine who took the banter game to his hand.
Yesterday it was Rohit Sharma today, Aussie’s target was Rishabh Pant. Tim Paine was taking a dig of India ODI team which was recently decided. As MS Dhoni is back for the ODI squad, Tim Paine was suggesting him to extend his holiday by playing for the Hobart Hurricanes.

Tim Paine was heard saying on the stump mic.
“I tell you what, big MS (Dhoni) is back in the One-Day squad, we might get (Pant) down to the Hurricanes, this bloke. We need a batter. Fancy that, surely, extend your little Aussie holiday, Beautiful town, Hobart, too. Get you a nice apartment on the waterfront. Have you over for dinner you Babysit? I’ll take the wife to the movies one night and you’ll look after the kids?”
Here is the video of the same.

Tim paine’s best performance in the series is talking and provoking the Indians , he can easily become a politician in pakistan. #AusvInd

Tim Paine trying to embarrass Indian players about their IPL stints, what would be more embarrassing if Tim Paine gets selected in any IPL by any franchise to embarrass him but that would be Tim Paine’s whole plan, getting an IPL Contract.#AUSvIND

Not a huge fan of Pant’s but he could have replied ‘Dont think they can afford me with the finances they have mate, so they will have to stick with you for a while I’m afraid! ‘ 🖐️😂😂😂😋

Nice tactics by Paine. Winning the Aussie crowds with his sledging even though his batting and keeping stinks. Good one mate. @tdpaine36
