MUMBAI: There is no one like Sachin says Sachin Tendulkar's coach Ramakant Achrekar
Speaking at the inauguration of Nyuzmakers Cricket Challenge, a tournament for jewellery retailers, a frail Achrekar simply said: "There is no one like Sachin."
When asked about Sachin's recent retirement, Achrekar said the timing he chose to retire is right.
"Sachin Tendulkar has served the nation for a long time. The timing he has chosen to retire from one-day internationals (ODI) is right. I am certain that he will continue to serve the nation through Test cricket and will carry forward the legacy by passing on his experience to youngsters," he said.
"He should have continued playing in all formats. I wish to see him play as long as I live," Achrekar had said.
Tendulkar Dec 23 closed a major chapter of his illustrious career by announcing his retirement from ODIs.
