India’s former batsman, Gautam Gambhir offers a hilarious reply to Tim Paine’s jibe at the Indian captain Virat Kohli. Recently, Paine was asked whether he wants his team to play a Day and Night Test match at the Gabba in the following year. Paine mocked Virat and said that we will ask for his permission for the game.
Virat did not reply to Paine’s satirical comments, however; Gautam fired shots at Paine. "I like the way Australia skipper Tim Paine has "flighted" one for India captain Virat Kohli, challenging him to play a day-night fixture on the next tour down under. Knowing Virat he is not the one to back out. And why should he? A day-night Test match between India and Australia at Brisbane or the MCG will be quite a spectacle.
And you can trust Aussies to make it a truly memorable game by some smart marketing. I haven't seen Virat's response for Paine but if I was him, I would have straight away told him to make some late-night babysitting arrangements as we were ready,” Gambhir wrote in a column.
India won the Test series against Australia (3-1) when they last toured the country back in 2018. The men in blue will be eyeing yet another dominant performance when they next tour Australia in 2020 for 4 Test matches. The venues of the Test series are yet to be decided.
