IND vs ENG: Monty Panesar proposes that the India-England series be called “Tendulkar Cook Trophy”


Former England spinner Monty Panesar suggested that the India vs England Test series be renamed “Tendulkar Cook trophy”, after Sachin Tendulkar and Alastair Cook, the teams’ top scorers in Test cricket. “Eng v India test series should be called” Tendulkar Cook trophy “because both have the highest test runs for their country, played a lot against each other and we know Tendulkar is the greatest legend and we have not named a series after him. ‘, Panesar wrote in a tweet on Wednesday.

India’s home test series against England is played for the Anthony De Mello Trophy, while India’s away series is played for the Pataudi Trophy.

Panesar’s suggestion provoked a lot of reactions from fans who came up with their own combinations.

“Why not the Botham-Kapil Trophy?” one user wrote.

“Let’s wait a year or two … it’s going to be Kohli – Root Trophy,” wrote another.

One user even suggested Panesar’s name for the trophy.

“Why not a bhajji panesar trophy?” wrote the user, referring to Panesar and India from spinner Harbhajan Singh.

To this Panesar replied, “” Harbhajan Panesar trophy “would have worked if I had more than 300 test wickets.”

Panesar, who was part of the England test team that last won a series in India in 2012, played 50 tests and took 167 wickets.


England made a winning start to their 2021 tour of India by beating the hosts by 227 runs in the first Test in Chennai.

The second Test will be played at the same venue – MA Chidambaram Stadium – and starts on February 13.
