New Delhi: Team India's legend Sachin Tendulkar got into a friendly banter with present captain of test team Virat Kohli.
It all started when Sachin Tendulkar asked Kohli if he could play, possibly hinting after Virat became a part owner of International Premier Tennis League's (IPTL) United Arab Emirates Royals team.
It did not take long for Virat to reply in an equally jestful manner. Virat said,"Not sure you have what it takes @sachin_rt paaji!"
Both the cricketers are huge fans of the Swiss tennis legend Roger Federer and have even watched him play during the Wimbledon 2015.
Virat has already expressed his love for tennis and Roger Federer. He said "I am a huge fan of Roger Federer and with him joining the UAE Royals, my decision to be on board with the team was firm.”
The UAE Royals feature some of tennis' greatest players and I am confident about the prospects of the team in the IPTL. I am also excited about the format of the IPTL, which I am sure, will drive further interest in the game of tennis."
The league has expanded to five teams for its second edition with the Japan Warriors joining last season's champions, the Indian Aces, alongside the UAE Royals, the Philippine Mavericks and the Singapore Slammers.
The league will begin in Japan from December 2 and culminate in Singapore on December 20.
