‘Best Babysitter!’ Paine’s Wife Posts Pic With Pant on Instagram

'Best babysitter!' That's what Bonnie Maggs, to whom Australian captain Tim Paine has been married, said about Rishabh Pant, in a story she posted on Instagram.

In a screengrab of Bonnie's Instagram story tweeted out by the ICC, the Indian wicketkeeper can be seen smiling, while holding her child.

The picture was taken during a function held ahead of the fourth Test, at Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s residence, in Sydney on Sunday, 30 December.

Both Indian and Australian cricket teams were present at the function.

The caption to Bonnie's Instagram story reportedly read as: “Best babysitter @rishabhpant”.

The post by Paine's wife assumes significance as it comes after a serious banter between Pant and the Australian captain during the third Test at Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on 29 December, where both the players took a dig at each other.
