NEW DELHI

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.
