their feet don’t move well and some are even scared of the ball hitting them That wasn’t the case with Sachin He was extremely confident; it was as if he had been playing cricket for a long time’ Achrekar revealed Achrekar’s assistant Das Shivalkar saw Sachin from close quarters from the day the Bandra boy enrolled himself at Achrekar’s nets "He was soft-spoken and very fair After taking a round of the ground his cheeks would turn red" Shivalkar remembers He says though Sachin was fluent during his first knock in the nets he did not demonstrate what he was capable of "He kept pushing the ball around with confidence but was a bit hesitant" It was then that Shivalkar opened the off side of the net It did not take long for Sachin to caress the ball sweetly through the covers though most of the strokes were played towards the mid-wicket region "There was nothing wrong with his batting but it wasn’t what I had seen some days before" Shivalkar recalls standing barely a kilometer away from the Kamath Memorial wicket The ‘sight’ that amazed Shivalkar was when one of his friends coaxed him to tag along to Bandra to watch the boy play amazing cricket Not exactly enthused by the prospect Shivalkar agreed but told his friend that he would have to treat him to beer or whisky in return ‘Done’ said his friend They went to Bandra and stood below a tree watching a short boy with a curly mop of hair show utter disdain for grownup boys bowling at him The ball flew in all directions as Sachin carted the attack with the maturity of a seasoned cricketer ‘Let’s have beer’ Shivalkar’s friend told him after about twenty minutes ‘Forget beer you have shown me pure scotch Let’s watch him play’ Shivalkar replied An excerpt from Ramakant Achrekar: Master Blaster’s Master by Kunal Purandare published by Roli Books The book is available at leading bookstores and on top ecommerce sites like Flipkart and Amazon UK’s May needs parliament to back deal with Northern Irish party: campaigner | Reuters World Reuters Sep 11 2017 22:45:07 IST Comment 0 Tweet This story has not been edited by Firstpost staff and is generated by auto-feed Published Date: Sep 11 2017 22:45 PM | Updated Date: Sep 11 2017 22:45 PM Tags : Written by Priyanka Sharma | Chandigarh | Published: August 31 2013 2:49 am Related News The Postgraduate Institute for Medical Research (PGIMER) and its Head of Department for Plastic SurgeryDr RK Sharma have been imposed a penalty of Rs 10 lakh by the State Consumer Disputes Redressal Forumwhich found them medically negligent and deficient in rendering services The premier institute and its plastic surgery department were held liable to pay the amount jointly or severally along with Rs 30000 as legal costs to the family of late Jaswinder Kumarwho lost his foot to delay in actual diagnosis of a malignant tumour The Fatehgarh Sahib resident had problems in his right foot since the last four years and had undergone various tests at DMC Ludhianawhere he was diagnosed with Low Flow AV Malformation Dorsum of right foot On being referred to PGIMERthe hospital conducted a Digital Subtraction Angiography After the reports established intermediately high flow AV Malformation on dorsum of right foot, Sachin, The accolades don?
