The four-match Test series between Australia and India has turned out to be a competitive one thus far. In this high-profile series, the stump microphones have also been used, something which has brought forth many conversations between players of both the teams. The second Test at new Perth Stadium saw Tim Paine and Virat Kohli engage in quite a few heated altercations.

In the ongoing Test at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), Paine along with Indian wicketkeeper-batsman has had some hilarious conversations. When Pant was batting in India’s first innings, Paine continuously kept chirping away, which was, undoubtedly, to ruffle Pant’s feathers. He even hurled some funny words when Rohit Sharma was in the middle.

To Rohit, Paine said that he would support Mumbai Indians (MI) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) if the batsmen managed to hit a six. Thereafter, Pant decided to give it back and kept saying something when Paine came to bat during Australia’s second innings.

The tactic to get under Paine’s skin eventually worked as Paine was soon nipped out by left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja after the batsman scored 26 runs from 67 balls with the help of four boundaries.

Pant said, “We’ve got a special guest today, come on boys. Special appearance today boy, come on. No responsibility there from the captain. Running away, always running away. Too difficult, too difficult,” he said before adding “Have you heard of the word, a ‘temporary captain’, ever? I am seeing it. You don’t need anything to get him out. He loves to talk, that’s the only thing he can do. Only talking, talking.”
