“Tendulkar had suggested to the MCA that the indoor academy at BKC’s surface be redone, so that cricketers benefit from it. When the work on the surface was completed, Sanjay Naik requested Tendulkar to come and have a look at the place and meet the person who has done the work,” said a close source of Sachin.

“I wasn’t informed about it. I don’t want to rake up a controversy, but this can’t be treated as the official inauguration of the academy. I had just come to BKC to watch the Harris Shield semifinal with Apex Council members Abhay Hadap, Kaushik Godbole and Ajinkya Naik. None of us four knew about this,” Achrekar told Times of India.

On the other hand, the charges were denied by Naik who told Times of India, ” There was no inauguration of the academy. It was just an inspection, which was recommended by Tendulkar himself. The academy was inaugurated 12 years back, so where does the question of inauguration come from?”
