Who said that the gallis are only meant for cricket? Leander Paes thinks that they're great for practising football too

Who said that the gallis are only meant for cricket? Leander Paes thinks that they're great for practising football too.



He tells CS, "When I was learning football, I played and practised it in the by lanes and gallis of Kolkata. I salute the street football trend and wish it grows fast in India. All our soccer heroes played street football in their teen years.

I really think that football is the sport to watch out for in India. With Indians taking so much interest in FIFA and school kids taking up soccer coaching, I really think that football will soon be a rage in India." We hope so too Leander. We've really had an overdose of cricket.
