During the ODI matches in Melbourne, Australian cricket captain called Indian wicket keeper Rishabh Pant ‘Babysitter’, which obviously was not well received by the Indians, especially.
But later everything went well with the cricketers when Paine’s wife Bonnie tagged Pant as the best babysitter. This incident happened between the matches when they both got engaged in an on field banter.
And now Star Sports India’s marketing team took this in a very serious note and bent it to suite the current marketing strategy for the same. Since the Aussies will be visiting soon for the matches, a new promo was created based on this incident.
Do have a look. Surely Virendra Sehwag has got got all the desi swag to represent what truly is meant to be.
Every baby needs a babysitter – 🇦🇺 and 🇮🇳 would remember this well! 😉
The Aussies are on their way and here's how @virendersehwag is welcoming 'em! Watch Paytm #INDvAUS Feb 24 onwards LIVE on Star Sports to know who will have the last laugh. #Babysitting pic.twitter.com/t5U8kBj78C

As an Aussie I don't find it insulting. It's quite funny. This is good banter between teams.
