Mansoor Ali Khan, nicknamed Tiger, is a former Indian cricketer and former captain of the Indian cricket team. He was the 9th and last Nawab of Pataudi until 1971, when India abolished royal entitlements through the 26th Amendment to the Constitution of India.

Mansoor was born to Iftikhar Ali Khan Pataudi, eighth Nawab of Pataudi and his wife Sajida Sultan, second daughter of the last ruling nawab of Bhopal. He was educated at Welham Boys' School in Dehradun (Uttarakhand), Lockers Park Prep School in Hertfordshire, Winchester College, and Balliol College, Oxford. His father died on Mansoor's 11th birthday in 1952, whereupon Mansoor succeeded as the ninth Nawab of Pataudi. While the princely state of Pataudi had been merged with India after the end of the British Raj in 1947, Mansoor inherited the titular dignity of Nawab of Pataudi. He held the title until the entitlements were abolished by the Government of India through the 26th amendment to the constitution in 1971.

On 27 December 1969, Mansoor married with Sharmila Tagore. Their son Saif Ali Khan was born on 16 August 1970. They are the parents of three children:

Saif Ali Khan, a Bollywood actor;
Soha Ali Khan, a Bollywood actress;
Saba Ali Khan a jewellery designer.

In June 2005, Mansoor Ali Khan was arrested for poaching an endangered Blackbuck. Naresh Kadyan, founder chairman, People for Animals (PFA) Haryana blows whistle crime against animals.
