Former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly and present Indian head coach Ravi Shastri haven't been in each other's good books, ever since Ganguly and others in the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) decided to appoint Anil Kumble as the head coach of the cricket team in 2016. 

The feud between the two took turn for worse earlier this year in June, when Shastri, appearing in an episode of Breakfast with Champions, stated that he taught Ganguly a lesson on punctuality in 2007. The former all-rounder had said that he ordered the team bus to leave without Dada, who came late. 

But Ganguly has hit back at Shastri, claiming nothing of this sort ever happened. The 'Prince of Kolkata' said in the episode of Breakfast with Champions Part 2, “You don’t interview in the morning, don’t bring him (Shastri) on the breakfast show he wouldn’t remember what he said. When I meet him I will tell him what do you say on the breakfast show, that never happened I don’t know where he got that from. But don’t interview him in the morning, do it in the evening he will be able to recall things better."

In that very conversation, he also revealed many interesting things about his former teammate and close friend, Sachin Tendulkar. The former Indian skipper revealed very interesting things related to Tendulkar, which included his sleepwalking habit.

The 'Prince of Kolkata' said, "We were roommates in England. So, one day I saw he was walking in the room. I said to myself, he must gone to the bathroom and I slept facing the other side. I didn't ask him anything the next day.

"Second day, I again saw him walking in the room. So I woke up and sat thinking, what does he do at 1.30 in the night. He takes a round in the room and then sits on the chair, come and then sleeps next to me. So next day I told him, 'you're scaring me, what do you do at night?' He said 'No, I walk while sleeping'...He had this habit of sleepwalking,"
