What happens when you make two popular politicians compete with each other at different sports? They go viral on social media.

This is exactly what happened when Telangana's IT and Municipal Administration and Urban Development (MAUD) Minister KT Rama Rao, faced off with Hyderabad MP and AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi. 

The duo, who inaugurated a brand-new sports complex, constructed by the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC), at Moghalpura, played a little bit of basketball, badminton and cricket.

While they each took turns at basketball, trying to score, the duo played opposite each other in badminton. 

For cricket, Owaisi was seen bowling, while KTR wielded the bat. 

Deputy Chief Minister Mohammed Mahmood Ali and Hyderabad Mayor Bonthu Rammohan were also present.

Several people were all praise for the 'sportsmanship' of the two politicians on social media.
