LONDON: Former India captain Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi was given cold shoulder by the England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) during the post-series presentation ceremony where English captain Andrew Strauss was officially handed the sponsors' trophy rather than the Pataudi Trophy for which the teams were officially playing for.
During the post-match presentation ceremony, Nawab Pataudi was called on the presentation dais along with other dignitaries which included ECB chairman Giles Clarke and sponsors' representative.

However former England captain Michael Atherton completely ignored Pataudi's presence and England captain was presented with Npower Trophy rather than Pataudi Trophy.
Once the organisers realised the goof-up, they presented the Pataudi Trophy to Strauss but it was when the telecast for the presentation ceremony was over.
