Indian opener Virender Sehwag inaugurated the academy.

Ramakant Acharekar, who coached Kambli as well as his school-mate Sachin Tendulkar, was also present.

Kambli, who played his first one-day international against Pakistan in 1991, said his childhood friend and batting legend Tendulkar could not come because of his previous engagements, but has offered to help the academy.
