Virender Sehwag babysits ahead of Australia series: The former Indian captain was seen babysitting a group of kids in a latest advertisement.
Known for his wit and humour apart from his modus operandi of batting, former India opening batsman Virender Sehwag was recently witnessing babysitting a group of kids during an advertisement.
Apparently, all the kids which were present in the video were wearing Australia’s ODI jersey. The advertisement has been shot as a promotional video for the upcoming Australia’s tour of India.
Sehwag, who is most likely to call during the series on host broadcaster Star Sports, appeared on the advertisement in a bid to bang the drum for the series which will comprise of two T20Is and five ODIs. With the first T20I set to be played on February 24 at Vishakhapatnam, it will be Inda’s last international assignment before the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.
The 40-year old individual is seen welcoming the kids, who all enter at once from a door. Referring to the hilarious babysitting banter between Australia captain Tim Paine and India wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant during the recently concluded Test series, Sehwag says in the video that now India has agreed to babysit the whole Australian team.
The visitors had earlier announced the same squad for both the T20I and ODI series. Having not won an ODI series since the start of 2017, Australia would be looking to improve their deteriorating record in the format. Given the opposition, it is most likely to be a daunting task for them.
Talking of Sehwag, out of his 251 ODIs, he had played 30 against Australia. His 629 runs had come at an average of 21.68 and a strike rate of 88.96 including three half-centuries. Watch the full video below:
