Tendulkar praises Borde's role

 
“Chandu Sir guided me through the difficulties a 16-year-old was expected to undergo on his first appearance on a foreign tour. He told me how to improve upon mistakes without disturbing my natural game technique and instincts,” Tendulkar said.

Tendulkar recalled Borde’s contribution to his shaping as a cricketer on the debut tour and said the gentle way in which the former all-rounder gave him useful tips in the nets boosted his confidence. “What Chandu Sir did for me then came from his passion for the game. He never expected any public acknowledgment of what he did for me or wished for anything in return,” he said.

The master blaster further went on to recount the more recent stint of Borde when he accompanied the Indian team as manager for the 2007 tour of England.  
“We needed somebody who could calm the nerves and Chandu sir did exactly that.”
