Well, when Paine came on the crease on day 4 to bat, it was pant’s turn to take revenge. Pant said to his fellow tea member Mayank- “Hey Mayank, have you ever heard of a temporary captain” regarding team Paine. He continued-“we have someone special on the crease today- the temporary captain.”
Pant did not stop there. when Jadeja was bowling, pant said to Jadeja- “you do not need to do anything to get him out him, he does not knows how to bat but only chat.”
Well, pant was in the full mood to sledge the Aussie captain further, but the on-field umpires came in between warned pant not to cross his limits.
