Who prepared Arjun Tendulkar ?

The role of a coach is considered the most important in a player's life and a coach only shows the player the path by which the player fulfills his dreams. 

Arjun has been closely associated with Atul Gaikwad. Pune-based Gaikwad is a level-3 coach from the National Cricket Academy (NCA) with a PhD in biomechanics, who has worked at Brisbane's Centre of Excellence. He was roped in by Sachin himself to coach Arjun three years ago. Arjun's action has had to be remodelled after he suffered from two stress fractures that ruled him out of cricket for close to a year in 2016-17.
