Earlier today, the two cricketing icons stumped fans as they were involved in a friendly banter on microblogging site Twitter over tennis. Apparently Tendulkar made clear his wish to play the game after Virat Kohli was announced as the co-owner of IPTL franchise UAE Royals -- which will be led by Roger Federer.

Tendulkar started off by Tweeting, "Hey @imVkohli, I want to play!"

Two which Kohli replied, "Not sure you have what it takes @sachin_rt paaji!"

This sent Twitter into a frenzy.

The two cricketers are huge fans of tennis ace Federer and were also spotted at the Wimbledon this year.
