Rishabh Pant was recently clicked with Tim Paine's wife and kids at the Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s residence, ahead of the fourth test. And the internet is losing its mind.
Tim Paine had asked Rishabh Pant if he could babysit during the Boxing Day Test between India and Australia.
In a series of on-field sledging, Paine asked Pant,
"Do you babysit? I can take my wife to the movies while you watch the kids."
Later, Bonnie Paine took to Instagram to share a picture of Pant with her kids, along with the caption, 'Best babysitter'.

This 'wholesome' picture is already winning the internet. Some netizens are appreciating the message of true sportsmanship, that this picture entails, instead of 'hatred against each other'.

While arm chair critics and keyboard warriors increase their hatred against each other over on-field issues; real sportsmen show how and where to draw boundaries. This is as good and wholesome a picture you will ever see #RishabhPant #AUSvIND pic.twitter.com/elXU6QloPQ— Sudarshan Ramarajan (@Suddu_R) January 1, 2019
