In a glittering ceremony in the national capital on Thursday, not only was the famous Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium renamed as the Arun Jaitley Stadium in honour of the late Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) president Arun Jaitley, but the new players' pavilion was also named after India skipper Virat Kohli.
Held at the Weightlifting Hall of the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, the occasion saw the Indian team in attendance as their skipper was duly honoured for his contribution to the game.
"When I left home today, I told my family one anecdote. I remember getting a ticket to watch a game in 2001 at the stadium and asking for autographs from the players. So to have a pavilion in my name at the same stadium today is surreal and a great honour," Kohli revealed.
