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.
Rohit was new to the crease and Tim Paine told him if he managed to hit a six, Paine would become a fan of Mumbai Indians.
He said he was confused between Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers but if Rohit manages to hit the six against Nathan Lyon. He’ll be Mumbai Indian.
Here is the video of Tim Paine

Earlier in the day, Pujara scored a ton, Skipper Kohli with solid 82 and Rohit Sharma scoring a half century (63*) declaring inning on 443/7. Australia is currently 8/0. Three exciting days await us with India having the upper hand.
