The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCC) is mulling over the idea of naming a series after cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar.  A discussion was held on the same during the BCCI officials’ informal meeting last Sunday, according to reports.

“It is too premature to talk about it at the moment. Before naming a series after Tendulkar, we have to first get into a bilateral series talk with some country. We should first get a commitment from the other board. We want a prestigious series to be named after Tendulkar,” Sanjay Patel, the BCCI secretary, was quoted as saying by a daily.

Presently, a bilateral series between India and Australia is named after the two legends Sunil Gavaskar and Allan Border, whereas a bilateral series against England in England is named Pataudi Trophy. And when India host England, the series is named Anthony De Mello Trophy, named after one of the founders of the BCCI.

When India host England, the series is called Anthony De Mello Trophy, which is named after one of the BCCI founders, Anthony Stanislaus de Mello.
