In honour of Indian captain Virat Kohli, Delhi and Districts Cricket Association have declared that they named a stand at Feroz Shah Kotla stadium after his name. This is exactly 11 years after the Indian skipper made his international debut. This also makes Virat the youngest ever active cricketer to be honoured with such gesture.
After an official inauguration ceremony at the Weightlifting Auditorium of the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium the stand will be open for the public on September 12. DDCA is proud of "Virat Kohli’s outstanding contribution to world cricket. We're quite glad to besotw this honour upon him for achieving great milestones and unbeatable captaincy record,” Rajat Sharma, DDCA president said.
It's equally an honour for "Feroz Shah Kotla" as he has played there as a teenager before joining the stalwarts in the Hall of Fame. To make this ever memorable, DDCA wanted to dedicate a stand to the name of this great player, he added. Till date, Kohli has achieved 11520, 6613 and 2369 runs in the respective formats and has 68 centuries to his name as well.
