Sachin Tendulkar was yet again involved in a friendly banter with Sourav Ganguly. The master batsman is currently in Berlin for the Laureus Sports Awards. During his stay, he posted a few photographs on Instagram. His caption read “Happy to be in Berlin for the @laureussport World Sports Awards 2020! #Laureus20 #SportsUnitesUs.”
The friendly banter
However, soon after he posted this photo, Sourav Ganguly commented saying “Kisi kisi ka kismat acha hai .. chuttii manate raho” (some people have great luck, keep enjoying your holidays)”. The BCCI President later deleted this comment and replaced it with “Tendulkar.. I was not wrong …”

The duo have been playing together since the beginning and have been one of the legendary opening pairs of Indian cricket. They have a partnership total of 6,362 runs over a span of 129 matches. One of the most emotional moments that the world witnessed was when Sachin Tendulkar retired. However, this happened at tEden Gardens where Sourav Ganguly was there to celebrate Tendulkar’s career. Incidentally, the balloons that were set off by Gnguly and Tendulkar were the only ones that refused to float. Later on, the legendary duo shared a hearty laugh over the incident.
Another story shared by Sourav Ganguly was how the duo would have friendly arguments about who should take the first strike, Ganguly said often he would choose himself to be the one. However, the times that he asked Tendulkar to do the honours, he always turned it down.
