Sachin Tendulkar Pays Tribute to Childhood Coach on Teachers Day

Achrekar sir taught me to play straight on the field and in life, Sachin Tendulkar pays tribute to childhood coach on Teachers Day. Achrekar, who received the Dronacharya Prize in 1990 and Padma Shri in 2010, was instrumental in training Tendulkar, Kambli and more than a dozen other cricketers.

Legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar paid tribute Thursday to his childhood coach, the late Ramakant Achrekar, on the occasion of Master’s Day.

On Twitter, Tendulkar walked the path of memory and shared a photo of him learning Batting techniques from Achrekar.

“Teachers deliver not only education but also values. Achrekar Sir taught me to play law, on the field and in life. I will always be grateful for your immeasurable contribution to my life. His lessons continue to guide me today.


 

Achrekar (87-years-old), who trained Tendulkar and his friend Vinod Kambli, among others, died in January this year after a heart attack.

After his death, Tendulkar paid an emotional tribute and tweeted: “Cricket in heaven will be enriched by the presence of Lord (Ramakant) Achrekar. Like many of his students under his shadow, I learned my ABCD cricket under Sir’s direction. Your contribution to my life cannot be captured in words. He built the foundation upon which I am standing.”

Achrekar, who received the Dronacharya Prize in 1990 and Padma Shri in 2010, was instrumental in training Tendulkar, Kambli and more than a dozen other cricketers.
