In an exciting new discovery, Ramakant Achrekar has pronounced Liz Hurley’s son, Damian to be the next Sachin Tendulkar.
Ramakant Achrekar was Sachin Tendulkar’s childhood mentor.
Achrekar said, “I have not seen such talent in a young lad since Sachin.”
Liz Hurley is thrilled and credits current boyfriend, Shane Warne, for shaping her young son’s destiny.
“Without Shane providing a guiding hand, Damian would never have tried his hand at cricket. He was always a David Beckham fan.Soccer was his first love.” said the thespian.
Achrekar has offered to take the young lad under his wings, making an exception for his outstanding gifts.
“I have always believed that I should only coach Mumbaikars but now God has provided me another opportunity to create another Tendulkar and who gets such a chance twice-in-a-lifetime?” said the Dronacharya award winner.
The coach believes that Damian can be the next great all-rounder to light up the cricketing firmament.
“He can spin the ball like Warne and bat like Sachin. I will be focusing on his fielding skills to make him an all-round cricketer.” marvelled Achrekar.
Hurley said,”I do not wish to put any pressure at Damian at this young age. He will decide which sport to take up seriously when he grows older.”
Tendulkar devotees have already started terming the young lad “Chhota God” and “Chhota Sachin”. Some have christened Elizabeth Hurley “Devi Hurley”.
Ramakant Achrekar will be coming out of semi-retirement to train Damian.
