Tendulkar, Kambli Attend Felicitation Function at Nagpur

Nagpur, July 18 (IANS):  Sachin Tendulkar and Vinod Kambli Saturday were together at a felicitation function, "Gaurav Guru Shishyancha" (in honour of mentor and disciple), with their coach Ramakant Achrekar, just days after Kambli's alleged remarks that the batting maestro did not help him during his days of struggle.

Kambli, in a television reality show, was reported to have accused his childhood friend Tendulkar of not supporting him when his cricket career was on the downslide.

Kambli later vehemently denied making the comment and said the report has shattered his and Tendulkar's families. The former Test batsman added that he had spoken to Tendulkar and they had "laughed off" the matter.

However, the video clip reportedly showed Kambli making the remark.

Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Shashank Manohar was the chief guest at Saturday's event, organised by Thackeray foundation.

Speaking on the occasion, Tendulkar attributed his success to Achrekar and said he taught him to be disciplined in life. Tendulkar said he was once slapped by Achrekar when, instead of batting for the school's B team, he cheered for his seniors from the sidelines.

Two other disciples of Achrekar, former Test players Praveen Amre and Sameer Dighe, were also felicitated along with Tendulkar and Kambli.
