January 5 marks the birth anniversary of legendary cricketer Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi. On the special day, his daughter Soha Ali Khan shared an album on her Instagram timeline. The album has a set of photos of Soha and Kunal along with Inaaya standing inside the stadium ground. The carousel also has a black-and-white photo of her father playing. The last frame of the post has a rare picture from Soha's childhood as she spent quality time with Mansoor Ali Khan.

"It seemed only fitting to remember and celebrate Abba on his birthday today by visiting one of his favourite places to play - The Melbourne Cricket Ground," Soha wrote in the caption of the post. She also mentioned that many considered her late father's finest innings to the match at the MCG in 19676-68. 


She also recalled the match and shared that India made 25 runs and 5 outs when Mansoor Ali Khan came to bat and he needed a runner because of a pulled hamstring.

Cricket commentator Harsha Bhogle also commented on the picture, “Ah, you made it there Soha! That was the innings I was telling you about. A fabulous innings from a fabulous person. Hope you had fun in Melbourne.”
