India scripted an enormous and their first ever Test series victory down under, Soon after the victory, the celebrations continued for a long time at the SCG. Meanwhile, the Indian fans at Sydney dedicated a song to the Rishabh Pant while also taking a dig at the Australian counterpart and skipper Tim Paine. The banter from the Bharat Army swooped in after Paine’s funny remark at Pant to babysit his kids. Apart from Paine, Pant also had a funny banter with the off-spinner Nathan Lyon.
The Indian wicket-keeper had been as ecstatic as his other teammates when he joined hands with the Bharat Army to do some dance steps to their tunes during the post-match celebration. The youngster has taken the social platform by storm through his bat, athletic skills and the unforgettable banters and displayed that he can also shake his legs in an equally stylish manner.
Post the third Test in Melbourne, the Delhi-wicketkeeper batsman didn’t back down from being a sport as he positioned himself beside Bonnie, Tim Paine’s wife and their kids. Bonnie, in turn, took to Instagram to post the story, framing Pant as the “best babysitter”. Here’s the entire video of him dancing:-

Pant shines throughout the series

The left-hander notched up 350 runs at an average of 58.33. The final Test of the series at Sydney saw the youngster bring up the second century of his career and a hundred in his maiden Australia tour.
He also leapfrogged MS Dhoni by achieving 673 Test rating points, which happens to be the highest rating points for an Indian keeper batsman. The latter, who hung his boots from the longest format of the game in 2014 achieved a rating of 662 points.
In nine Tests, Pant has mustered 696 runs, with a couple of centuries at an average of nearly 50. Although his glovework had slightly come under scrutiny, he still managed to affect 20 dismissals in the red-ball games for India against the Aussie.
