A deadly duo once upon a time, Sachin Tendulkar & Sourav Ganguly used to give bowlers nightmares when they opened the batting for India. Together, they won matches and broke records. And of course, they formed an undying friendship as well.

So why did Ganguly threaten to quit the All Star T20 league, that is being started by Sachin Tendulkar & Shane Warne?

The answer to the question lies below:

Sourav Ganguly: "I have told Sachin, if I don't open, I will catch the next flight to Kolkata. So that is a criterion for playing.”

What could be the reason behind Dada not opening? Well... Him.

If you have one of the most destructive openers in history, Matthew Hayden, you will obviously reconsider your options. And Dada knows that too.

Hence, he gave the before mentioned criteria. To which, the Little Master replied:

Sachin's tweet only shows how strong and classy the friendship between the two legends really is.

Just imagine Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly & Matthew Hayden in one batting line up. USA is damn lucky!
