DDCA to name Kotla stand after Virat Kohli

New Delhi, Aug 18, 2019-

Celebrating his achievements in international cricket, the Delhi & District Cricket Association on Sunday decided to name one stand at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium after India skipper Virat Kohli.

“Virat Kohli’s outstanding contribution to world cricket has done DDCA proud. We are happy to honour him for achieving certain milestones and for his unbeatable captaincy record,” DDCA President Rajat Sharma said in a statement.

“DDCA president @RajatSharmaLive and Apex Council decide to name one Stand of Ferozshah Kotla stadium as ‘Virat Kohli Stand’ in honour of his achievements,” a tweet by DDCA read.

Kohli will become the youngest cricketer to have the honour of a stand being named after him. Delhi cricketers Bishan Singh Bedi and Mohinder Amarnath have stands named after them in Kotla, but those were done after their retirement.

Virender Sehwag and Anjum Chopra are the other Delhi cricketers who have gates named after them. The Hall of Fame is named after former India captain M.A.K. Pataudi.

“I’m sure the ‘Virat Kohli Stand’ will be a source of inspiration for Delhi’s young cricketers. We are also delighted that Team India is not only led by a Delhi player, but it also has an opening batsman (Shikhar Dhawan), a wk (Rishabh Pant) and a lead fast bowler (Ishant Sharma). It’s a matter of pride for DDCA to felicitate the entire national cricket team and coach Ravi Shastri,” Sharma further said in the tweet.

The DDCA will felicitate the Indian team members at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium on September 12.  (Agency)
