While sledging has always been a part and parcel of this beautiful game of cricket, the one which got the most of the attention this time around has to be the ‘Baby Sitter’ sledge.
Let’s rewind to the previous test match at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. The Australian Cricket Team Captain had taken a dig at India’s Rishabh Pant for not getting selected in the ODI Series. Paine also told Pant to maybe ‘Baby-Sit’ while he can take his wife out to movies considering he had some extra time on his hands while not being a part of the squad.
While the conversation had gone quite viral, Tim Paine’s wife, Bonnie Paine happened to meet Rishabh Pant and while doing so, the left-handed wicket-keeper batsman actually baby-sitted Tim Paine’s child. Pant was seen holding Paine’s child in one of the pictures and the fans certainly could not get enough of the same.
Ever since Bonnie’s Instagram account has gone absolutely viral and her follower’s count has taken a big jump from 5 k to 50 k in just 3-4 days. While Mrs. Paine is a successful professional in her own domain, there is also no doubt that she is one of the hottest ‘Wags’ doing the rounds as far as Australian Cricket is concerned. Here are a few of her gorgeous pictures.
