Kolkata: Responding to Sourav Ganguly’s statement that he will fly back to Kolkata if not allowed to open the innings in the Cricket All Stars league, Sachin Tendulkar on Wednesday quipped that the former India captain’s “application is being processed".
"Dada your application for the opener's position is being processed!Hope the off drive is coming from the sweet spot,” Tendulkar tweeted light heartedly.
Ganguly on Tuesday batted at the nets for around 30 minutes as part of his tune-up against Australian legend Shane Warne’s ‘Warne's Warriors’ in the first match in New York City on November 7. Ganguly will be turning up for Sachin Tendulkar's team 'Sachin's Blasters'.
"I have told Sachin, if I don't open, I will catch the next flight to Kolkata. So that is a criteria for playing," Ganguly, who was in a jovial mood, had told a news channel after practice.
