Australian captain Tim Pine showed that there is still a sense of humor despite a grueling day on Friday, pleasantly answering the phone of a journalist during a live press conference.
The wicketkeeper was able to forgive for wanting to leave the room as soon as possible after breaking 167 breaks behind the stumps against India in the fourth test in Sydney.
But when the phone at the table rang in front of him, he took it and talked with the editor of the journalist at the other end, leaving the media pack in the seams.
"Tim Payne speaks," he said. "Who is it, sorry? It's Katie in Hong Kong. Who are you?" He continued.
"Ah Martin, he's in the middle of a press conference right now. Can I get him to call you?
"Do not worry, I'll tell him to check his messages. Thanks to Katie, joy." Paine proved to enjoy laughter by engaging in a ridiculous champion on the pitch during a four-test series, including cheeky sleigh in the second Test in Perth to Murali Vijay for Indian captain Virat Kohl.
"I know he is your captain, but you can not seriously love him as a human," he said. And on the test for boxing matches in Melbourne, he suggested that the young Indian recorder Rishab Pant could care for him and his wife.
"Fancy it, Pantsy?" Spread your little Audi holiday. Can you keep children? I'll take the woman to movies one night and take care of the kids. "Despite the delightful press conference, Paine knows she has a mountain to mounted on Saturday, with India, compiling a massive 622 for seven reported in Sydney.
