Australia may have been outplayed by India on first two days of the fourth Test in Sydney, but home captain Tim Paine appeared in high spirits at the press conference following Friday’s action.

The proceedings in the media room were interrupted after one journalist’s mobile phone, placed quite close to Paine, rang out.

Paine, however, found the lighter side of it as he not just halted to answer the call, but did it in the most savage way possible.

“Tim Paine speaking…,” he started, much to the amusement of the press room.

“Who is it, sorry?”

“Okay, who are you after?”

“Oh, Martin! Alright. He’s in the middle of a press conference. Can I get him to call you back?”

“Alright! Thanks, Casey. Cheers.”

No wonder, the man himself burst out laughing before the resumption.

Meanwhile, India, who are already 2-1 up in the four-match series, would believe they have done enough to have sealed their maiden Test series Down Under after amassing 622-7 in the first innings.

Australia were 24-0 at stumps.
