India vs Australia test matches always creates a bit of drama and buzz. And yes a bit of sledging. If anything that made more rounds after the third test of India vs Australia in Melbourne Cricket Ground was Rishabh Pant calling Tim Paine ” the Temporary Captain” from behind the wicket. These made rounds around social media and fans were excited. But if something made more news was that after this Pant clicked a photo with Tim Paine’s Wife, Bonnie Paine, and his kids.
Pant becoming a babysitter during New Year’s Day at Australia’s Prime Minister’s residence was all fans needed and showed how things are eased out outside the cricket field. Bonnie uploaded the picture on her Instagram story giving it the title of the best babysitter and immediately it caught the eye of everyone. The picture went viral and Boinne Paine indeed got a lot of followers overnight. But she gives all these credits to young Rishabh Pant.
She had around 5,000 followers on the social media website Instagram and now she is being followed by precisely 36.2k. Even ICC liked her tweet and many cricketers found this gesture fascinating. When she was brought to notice about this, she laughed out commenting “A lot of Pant fans I think,”
We definitely love this new friendship and quirky side of Bonnie Paine and hope to see more bromance of Pant and Tim Paine on the field (you know what I mean).
