Later this month, Australia will play 2 T20Is and 5 ODIs against India and it is expected to be another spicy contest.India will soon return home from a successful tour Down Under. Under Virat Kohli, India won their first ever bilateral Test and ODI series in Australia. But the Test series was punctuated with some verbal battles which included a series of sledges between Tim Paine and Rishabh Pant.During a Test match, Paine asked Pant if he would like to babysit his kids while he went out with Mrs Paine. Not one to take a back step, Pant called Paine a temporary captain.A few days later, Rishabh Pant was pictured with the Paine kids and Mrs Paine captioned the photo ‘Best Babysitter.’ During the Sydney Test in January, the Bharat Army even dedicated a song to Babysitter Pant.It was all in good humour but the new TV commercial is hilarious.In an advertisement for Star Sports, Sehwag is seen with a bunch of kids wearing Australian jerseys: “Jab hum Australia gaye the, toh unhone poocha tha babysitting karoge? Humne kahaa sabke sab aajaao. Zaroor karenge.”India’s tour of Australia produced some iconic cricket moments but the one that really stood out was Pant’s photo with Mrs Paine and the kids. In a press conference, Tim Paine explained how the now viral photo shoot happened.”We were at the PM’s house.. just had a quick chat to Rishabh. My wife happened to be there so we just grabbed a quick photo. He was a good sport and he is on the field, to be honest.advertisement “A fair bit has been made of a little bit of banter between two wicketkeepers which has been pretty light-hearted and pretty friendly. I enjoy the way he goes about it. I wish I played that way when I was his age. He looks like he has a hell of a lot of fun,” Paine said.Also Read | Best babysitter: Tim Paine’s wife shares photo of Rishabh Pant with her kidsAlso Read | ICC’s tribute to champion babysitter and champion cricketer Rishabh Pant is going viralAlso Read | Rohit bhaiya, more than happy to babysit Samaira: Rishabh PantAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

A busy footpath in Washington DC got a no mobile phones lane

first_img Source: TeaCake/Twitter DC got a cellphone-only sidewalk lane. What happened next… https://t.co/PYfbH7RdRn pic.twitter.com/kjbNAfPwt9— Michael Hendrix (@michael_hendrix) July 18, 2014 Unfortunately Yahoo reports that only a minority of pedestrians actually paid any attention to the divide, but a LOT of people took out their phones to take a picture. Figures.Guess everyone is just going to have to put up with those pesky text-and-walkers a little longer. (Sorry in advance.)9 struggles everyone faces at an outdoor gig in Ireland>Here’s how one Monaghan shop are excellently dealing with useless Garth Brooks merch> Cellphone lanes? Only in D.C. pic.twitter.com/zaRTwLnN5p— TeaCake (@readNrainbow) July 17, 2014 Source: Michael Hendrix/Twitter HAVE YOU EVER been stuck walking behind someone who’s completely engrossed in their phone, moving at a glacial pace and crashing into other pedestrians?Annoying, right? Well, a city in the US tried to change that. Tried.Earlier this week, a footpath in Washington DC was separated into two lanes: ‘cellphones’ and ‘no cellphones’. So those who want to walk and text were supposed to use the ‘cellphone’ lane, and everyone else would take the other one. The project was being carried out as a ‘social experiment’ for the National Geographic TV show Mind Over Masses, and a TV crew was camped out on the street to capture how people would react.But did it work? Did a peace settle on the streets? Did the people who walk with their noses in their phones stay in their own lane? Er, no.last_img read more
