Meanwhile, talking about Tiger Pataudi, sometime back, Jeffrey Archer, one of the best-selling English authors, spoke about the cricketer. For those unaware, Archer had written a short story ‘Century’, whose main protagonist many believed, was based on Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi.
"I have been very privileged to have known Nawab of Pataudi, when we were both studying at the Oxford and we remained friends through that time. Quite recently, I had done a big charity auction for his wife (Sharmila Tagore) and daughter and I admire them both,” said Archer.
During their days at Oxford, Archer would often bump into Pataudi at university’s sports club Vincent’s.
Tiger Pataudi’s grit after his car accident fascinates Archer to this day and he fondly remembers the man whom he calls “last among old fashioned amateurs.”
“When Tiger had that accident, I had assumed that he would never play cricket again. I underestimated his amazing character and determination. He wouldn’t just give up and go away. He just got on with it. The fact that he was able to play the game at the world level was staggering and made him a great hero at Oxford, someone whom we all looked up to,” he recollected.
