Feroz Shah Kotla Renamed Arun Jaitley Stadium

177

Feroz Shah Kotla stadium in Delhi was renamed after former finance minister Arun Jaitley in a renaming ceremony held at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium on Thursday.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah was the chief guest for the function, where a new pavilion stand at the stadium was also dedicated to India skipper Virat Kohli, to recognize his outstanding achievements in the field of cricket.

District Cricket Association (DDCA) had announced its decision on August 27, in a befitting tribute to the late union minister, who breathed his last at the age of 66 after a prolonged illness on August 24. However, the DDCA confirmed that the ground will continue to be called the Feroz Shah Kotla.
