Bhopal: Sharmila Tagore, wife of the late Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi, is excited about the plan of the Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI) to hold a Pataudi Memorial Lecture and has a few names in her mind from the cricketing fraternity.
"The lecture would be more than a condolence speech, so a person should not only know few things about him (Pataudi) but know him as well," said Sharmila.
When asked who she would like to lecture in the Pataudi Memorial Lecture, Sharmila said: "Yes, I would like to suggest a few names like Mike Brearley, Ted Dexter (both former England skippers) or Ian Chappell (former Australia skipper)."
Sharmila mentioned that recently Ian Chappell had given a good speech on Pataudi, who was also known as "Tiger".
