According to some sources, the BCCI is happy to call it The Pataudi Trophy, but it will not have his children or wife give away the Cup to the winner as the family is not supporting the series monetarily.

New Delhi: Sharmila Tagore, actor and wife of Late Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi, has written to the BCCI President N Srinivasan, asking him to make the Pataudi Trophy (India-England series) official.

"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."

"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," Mrs Tagore wrote to Mr Srinivasan.
