Ajit  Tendulkar introduced the young Sachin to cricket in 1984. Ajit Tendulkar introduced Sachin to Ramakant Achrekar, a famous cricket coach and a club cricketer of repute, at Shivaji Park, Dadar. In the first meeting, the young Sachin Tendulkar did not play his best. Ajit Tendulkar told Achrekar that he was feeling self-conscious due to the coach observing him, and was not displaying his natural game.

This time, Sachin Tendulkar, apparently unobserved, played much better and was accepted at Achrekar's academy.
