Sharmila Tagore, actor and wife of late cricketer Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi, sought institution of a Pataudi lecture and a Pataudi Trophy for the upcoming India-England series.
She wrote to BCCI President N Srinivasan requesting him to name the India-England series after her late husband.
"As you are aware, next week India-England test series begins. I am given to understand ECB has already written to BCCI requesting to make the trophy official. You will recall my previous mail to you where I had mentioned our disappointment at the close of the test series at the Oval and had urged you to take the matter forward and formalise the trophy," said Tagore in her letter to Srinivasan.
"You had assured me that you have told the people concerned to take it forward. Please note that this correspondence is almost a year old. Now, since there is very little time before the start of the series, I am hoping you will act on this matter soon and inform me about your decision at your earliest," she added.
Tagore has also questioned the delay in instituting the BCCI Annual Lecture in Tiger Pataudi's name.
