The Indian cricket team toured England from 19 July to 8 September 2007. The tour included 3 Tests and 7 ODIs. During the Test series, the Pataudi Trophy, a prize commissioned by the MCC to commemorate the 75th anniversary of India's Test debut, was competed for. This was designed and created by Jocelyn Burton, Holborn, London.
Steve Harmison was named in the England squad for the first Test but withdrew just a day later due to a hernia and has undergone an operation to treat it, ruling him out for the entire series. Chris Tremlett was named as his replacement. Matthew Hoggard did not play in the first two Test matches against India after being sent to hospital following a back spasm.
