RIP Ramkant Achrekar

He was coach of Sachin Tendulkar, Vinod Kambli, Chandrakant Pandit, Ajit Agarkar, Sanjay Bangar, Pravin Amre and Ramesh Powar,.


This is what Sachin said:
"Cricket in heaven will be enriched with the presence of Achrekar sir," Tendulkar said in a statement. "Like many of his students, I learnt my ABCD of cricket under Sir's guidance. His contribution to my life cannot be captured in words. He built the foundation that I stand on.

"Last month, I met Sir along with some of his students and spent some time together. We shared a laugh as we remembered the old times. Achrekar sir taught us the virtues of playing straight and living straight. Thank you for making us a part of your life and enriching us with your coaching manual. Well played Sir and may you coach more wherever you are."

Not as big an enthusiast of Finney's film acting as most, but his Arthur Seaton in Saturday Night and Sunday Morning was superb and captured the moment of the British New Wave. I like The Duellists, Gumshoe and Two For the Road. Finney is always fine though and deserves to be remembered among the key actors of his time.

RIP Gordon Banks. It's been so long since England won a world cup that most are either dead, have alzheimers, or are in their 80's
