Virender Sehwag felicitated in unique way at Feroz Shah Kotla ahead of 4th test match

Ahead of the start of first day's play at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium New Delhi today between India and South Africa, batting maestro Virender Sehwag was fittingly honoured by the Delhi District Cricket Association.

Both ends of the iconic stadium have been named after Sehwag - who recently announced his retirement from international cricket. The DDCA announced the move in recognition of Sehwag's mammoth triple centuries against Pakistan and South Africa in 2005 and 2008 respectively.

Bowlers will run in from the 'Viru 309 end' and 'Viru 319 end'. Sehwag expressed his delight at the honour in a tweet.

The BCCI also arranged for a small presentation ceremony before start of play, with BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur presenting the legend with a memento in recognition for his contribution to Indian cricket. Sehwag was joined by his two sons.
