BCCI rejects Pataudi trophy for England Tests
India's cricket chiefs have turned down a proposal to name the trophy for the upcoming Tests against England after former captain Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi, who died last year aged 70.
The Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), which owns the revered Lord's ground in London, instituted the Pataudi Trophy in 2007 for the winner of India-England series in England.
The family of Pataudi, nicknamed "Tiger", wrote to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) asking them to follow England's lead.
But the Board of Control for Cricket in India on Wednesday said that the MCC's Pataudi Trophy was meant only for the series played in England and it had its own prize to be awarded to the winner of the series in India.
