Master blaster Sachin Tendulkar on Thursday paid tribute to his late coach Ramakant Achrekar at the Shivaji Park Gymkhana. Shivaji Park is the same place where the late coach gave training to Tendulkar right from his childhood days. The cricketer was accompanied by Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar and BJP Mumbai chief Ashish Shelar who also paid tribute to Achrekar.
Tendulkar’s childhood coach passed away at the age of 87 on January 2. The Dronacharya awardee had blessed the Indian cricket with the likes of Tendulkar and Vinod Kambli.
