Rishabh Pant ‘Babysitter’ Dance is the Celebration We Needed After India’s Historic Win

Rishabh Pant has had a cracker of a Test series in Australia and his all-new ‘babysitter’ dance is a cherry on top.

The young Indian wicket-keeper recently climbed 21 places to 17th spot on the ICC Test cricket ranking for batsmen after his 159* against Australia in Sydney, and a total of 350 runs in the Border-Gavaskar series that also saw him take 20 catches. The 21-year-old’s aggregate of 673 rating points is also the highest by an India wicket-keeper, with MS Dhoni having the next highest aggregate of 662 points.

Apart from his valuable contribution to the team, his banters with the Australian skipper Tim Paine became the highlight of his animated outings on the field. During the third Test at MCG, Pant literally turned into a babysitter for the Paine family. On Monday, after Team India scripted history, winning the series 2-1, Pant was seen dancing to the viral chants created by The Bharat Army. The Indian keeper, who was in a celebratory mood, even devised his own steps to go with the song.
We’ve got Pant
Rishab Pant
I just don’t think you’ll understand
He’ll hit you for a six
He’ll babysit your kids
We’ve got Rishab Pant

Bharat Army was thrilled at the sight of Pant dancing.

The Indian Team had also engaged in a hilarious ‘Pujara Dance’ celebration in front of the crowd and it was later revealed by Kohli that it was, in fact, Pant who came up with it as a joke on the way Cheteshwar Pujara walks.

It was during the Day 3 of MCG Test when Paine had given birth to ‘babysitter’ banter.

“Tell you what, big MS is back in the one-day squad too, we might get him (Pant) down to the (Hobart) Hurricanes this bloke, we need a batter,” Paine had said from behind the stumps.

“Fancy that Pant? Extend your little Aussie holiday? Beautiful town Hobart too. Get you a nice apartment on the water-front. Have him over for dinner. Can you babysit? (Can I) take the wife to the movies one night, you can look after the kids?,” he had further added.

After this, Pant was seen babysitting Paine’s kids in an Instagram post by the Australian skipper’s wife Bonnie.
