The International Cricket Council (ICC) announced the awards for the year 2018 on Tuesday. While Virat Kohli swept the top three awards, the youngster Rishabh Pant won the Emerging Cricketer of the Year award for the sensational start to his Test career. More than that, the way the ICC’s Twitter handle congratulated him has left many in splits and Tim Paine’s wife Bon Paine has loved it as well.
ICC posted the picture which consisted the Tim Paine and Bon Paine sitting with their kids along with Rishabh Pant in the middle babysitting them. The banter goes back to the third Test between India and Australia in Melbourne when Paine, while wicketkeeping, had offered a babysitter role to Pant. The trolling went to a whole new level when Pant met Bon and the kids at the New Year’s Day.
He also spent some great time with their kids and it goes without saying that the pictures were also clicked. Post that, Bon Paine updated her Instagram story and termed Rishabh as the babysitter ever. The picture and the story spread like anything and now the ICC has famously recalled it while calling Pant as the champion babysitter and champion cricketer while congratulating him on winning the award.
Here’s ICC’s tweet:

Bon Paine loves it but also has a wish
Meanwhile, Bon Paine has loved to see her family with Rishabh Pant. However, she has hilariously trolled herself with a cheeky comment in her latest Instagram story. Ever since the babysitter banter gone viral, she has time and again tagged Rishabh in her stories asking for his availability for the role and also credited the 22-year-old for her instant increase in followers on social media as well.
“haha dying over this sketch. But I do wish my bust was that big, Bon wrote in her Instagram story while expressing her delight over ICC’s tweet.
