After news confirmed that tennis superstar Roger Federer will play for Indian cricketer Virat Kohli's team, Sachin took to Twitter to asking Kohli, "Hey @imVkohli, I want to play!"
Kohli immediately responded to his former teammate with a light-hearted response saying, "Not sure you have what it takes @sachin_rt paaji!"

India's Test skipper Kohli has been announced as a co-owner of the UAE Royals side in the International Premier Tennis League (IPTL).
Both Sachin and Kohli are avid followers of tennis and admirers of Roger Federer. The duo were seen watching Wimbledon 2015 in British summers.
On Thursday, the official Twitter account of UAE Royals wrote that Kohli is one of the co-owners of the franchise.
"The #UAERoyals co-owner has arrived in #UAE & is excited about tomorrow's press conference. Stay tuned for more!," the team wrote on its Twitter page.
Kohli, who recently led India to a historic 2-1 Test series win in Sri Lanka, also co-owns a football team - FC Goa in the Indian Super League.
