DCA announced a new pavilion stand at the Feroz Shah Kotla after Virat Kohli. Kohli recently became the most successful India captain in Test cricket by outperforming MS Dhoni.
India skipper Virat Kohli expressed his gratitude after being honoured with a stand to his name at Arun Jaitley Stadium and shared a tale from the past on this historic occasion.
Kohli said, “In 2000-2001, there was a Test vs Zimbabwe at Kotla. We were sitting across from the pavilion stand. Sehwag. Yuvi paaji. Srinath was standing at the boundary. I was asking him for an autograph. Never thought I would ever be honoured at the same stadium.”
Further he thanked everyone, and said, “I am a bit nervous seeing so many important people. I was not expecting such a grand stage to honour me. Thank You Rajat Sir and my team who is present here. All the former players of Delhi, Kapil Dev Sir, I thank you a lot. It’s weird to talk about this but I just want to thank the people who are present here – my wife and family.”
