Feroz Shah Kotla to have a stand named after Kohli
Virat Kohli has been in phenomenal form since the last few years. He has also scored back to back hundred in the recently concluded ODI series against West Indies.
Virat Kohli has already made a big mark in Indian cricket with still years left of his retirement and DDCA has already decided to name one stand at Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium after the India captain for his brilliant performance throughout the years.
If it happens, Kohli will be youngest active cricketer to be bestowed with the honour of a stand being named after him. Bishan Singh Bedi and Mohinder Amarnath are the two other Delhi players who have stands after their names but, but it came after their retirements.
DDCA President Rajat Sharma said in a statement:
“Virat Kohli’s outstanding contribution to world cricket has done DDCA proud. We are happy to honour him for achieving certain milestones and unbeatable captaincy record.
The DDCA function will document Kohli’s exceptional talent and success ever since he took over charge in all formats of the game.
“To cherish these memories, DDCA wanted to dedicate a stand in his name. I am 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 a opening batsman (Shikhar Dhawan), a wicket keeper (Rishabh Pant) and a lead bowler (Ishant Sharma),” he added.
