Kolkata: They are rated as the best opening batting combination in the history of one day cricket. But having served India together for years, Sourav Ganguly and Sachin Tendulkar now find themselves on the opposite sides of the Indian Super League. However, Ganguly on Monday said tongue-in-cheek that the Mumbaikar has to first learn the game of soccer.
"We are now on opposite sides of the sideline," Ganguly told a television channel ABP Ananda here, a day after bagging the Kolkata franchise alongside industrialists Sanjiv Goenka and Harshvardhan Neotia and merchant backing and financial services expert Utsav Parekh and Spanish premier league side Atletico Madrid.
Tendulkar has partnered PVP Ventures to win the rights of the Kochi franchise. (Tendulkar, Ganguly to own teams in Indian Super League)
