Rishabh Pant is seemingly in demand as much off the cricket field as he is on it.

Since the Indian team's triumphant return from Australia, following a historic victory in the land down under, Pant and his teammates have been getting some welll-deserved rest before their next series of matches. That being said, batsman Rohit Sharma probably won't be getting as much R&R as he would have liked given that his wife recently gave birth to a baby girl. Thankfully there's Pant.

The back and forth between Australia captain Tim Paine and Pant during the recently concluded Test series in Australia had left many fans and commentators in splits.

One of the barbs that caught the attention of many was when Paine asked Pant if he could babysit. “Do you babysit? I’ll take my wife to the movies one night and you can babysit,” he had told the Indian wicketkeeper when he was batting. However, it seems Pant took Paine’s words at face value, and Paine’s wife Bonnie posted a picture of herself and her children alongside Pant with a tongue-in-cheek caption “Best babysitter”.

Little wonder then that Sharma asked if his team-mate could lend a hand in babysitting his daughter. Responding to Pant's 'Good Morning' post on Twitter on Wednesday, Sharma wrote, "Morning buddy. Heard you're a good baby sitter, need one right now. Ritika will be quite happy @RishabPant777."




The friendly banter quickly caught the eye of Twitter users and in less than three hours, Sharma's cheeky reply got close to 30k likes
