Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison greeted Rishab Pant at his official residence and congratulated him for getting even with Tim Paine in a battle of sledging during the Melbourne Test.
The Australian PM welcomed the two teams ahead of the Sydney Test match at his official residence Kirribilli House in Sydney.
Morrison greeted the Indian players. There was this interesting conversation between him and wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant. When Indian team manager Sunil Subramaniam introduced Pant to the Aussie PM, he said, “Ahh yes! You sledge, right? You are very welcome, we like a competitive game.”
Pant reacted with a cheeky smile shaking hands with the PM and his wife. The young wicket-keeper has attracted a lot of attention for his banter with Australian captain Paine.
Paine, sledged Pant. He was heard saying that since MS Dhoni was back in the limited overs squad, he could babysit his kids.
Pant hit back when Paine came out to bat and even called him a ‘temporary captain.’
“You got a special guest today…come on Manky (Mayank). Have you heard a word temporary captain? Hai mank (Mayank)? Have you heard the word temporary captain ever? You don’t need anything to get him out. He loves to talk, that’s the only thing he can do,” Rishabh was heard chatting to Mayank who was standing next to him in the slips trying to distract Paine during the Melbourne Test.
