Cricketers Bishan Singh Bedi, Abbas Ali Baig, Maninder Singh and others who played under Tiger Pataudi shared stories and others like Md. Azharuddin came to pay his respects.
The Bhopal Pataudi Polo Cup was first instituted in 1996 when the late Nawab Mansur Ali Khan of Pataudi , presented it to the Army Polo Riding Club, as a running trophy. Though not a polo player himself, Tiger Pataudi was a polo enthusiast. This was hardly surprising given that his father, a renowned cricketer, an Oxford Blue at hockey and billiards, was also a keen polo player. Tiger’s maternal grandfather Nawab Hamidullah Khan of Bhopal was not only a 9 goal player himself but he even captained the Bhopal team. This cup has been named after them in recognition of their enormous contribution to polo.
The presenting sponsor for the Bhopal Pataudi Polo Cup 2014 is M3M, supported by Oncam Grandeye. The match will be played between teams of I.L.A. Pasrich & Company and M3M Polo Suites.
