Tim Paine has been quite the witty player this season, with jibes and comments at the tip of his tongue. His spat with Virat Kohli was not the end of it.
He tried to troll Rishabh Pant as well, now that Dhoni has been selected for the ODI team and Pant has not. He used that to his advantage, and mocked Pant.
You can check out what he said below.
Tim Paine at it again 🗣️

Rishabh Pant had something to add after this. Check out the video from the last match:

He said into the stump mic, “We have got a special guest today. Have you ever heard the word ‘temporary captain?’ You don’t need anything to get him out.”
While we are glad that Pant did not take Paine’s trolling sitting down, not all fans agree.
Both keepers talk but can’t bat! Can learn a thing or two from Butler.

Although some people did support Pant:
Love how the aussies get triggered when someone gives them back their own medicine. Pant is 🔥🔥

People actually called Paine a bully:
Paine the guy in your school who bullies kids when he's with friends but runs towards the teacher when the bullied kid returns alone.
