The Pataudi family comprising of Sharmila Tagore, Saif Ali Khan, Soha Ali Khan and Sabah will be attending a special dinner ceremony organized by the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) in honour of late Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi. The grand function is scheduled to take place at the Mecca of Cricket- The Lords Cricket Stadium in London.
It may be recalled that Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi aka Tiger Pataudi had captained India at the Lords in 1967. Tiger’s father Senior Nawab of Pataudi had even worn MCC colours on England’s tour of Australia way back in 1932-33.
The relation between the Pataudis and the MCC is an old one. Few years back, in 2007, the MCC had commissioned a trophy for Test match series between India and England which was named the Pataudi Trophy in honour of Tiger’s father, the 8th Nawab.
Now this special dinner ceremony is yet another honour bestowed upon one of India’s greatest cricket captain.
