Delhi stadium Feroz Shah Kotla was renamed after former finance minister Arun Jaitley, who died last month. Arun Jaitley was the former president of Delhi District Cricket Association (DDCA) who served in the board from 1999 to 2013. The event also marked the naming of a stand at the stadium after the current Indian skipper Virat Kohli.
The event was attended by Anushka Sharma, DDCA president Rajat Sharma, Home Minister Amit Shah, Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Rathore, MoS Kiren Rijiju, Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwary, former cricketers, team India and family of Arun Jaitley.
During the event, Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma were caught on camera while sharing an adorable moment sat next to each other. Netizens were quick to notice the love between the two and the video went viral immediately.
Virat Kohli and his team will next be seen playing a bilateral series against South Africa at home. The three-match T20I and Test series will start from September 15 and first T20I match will take place in Dharamshala followed by Mohali and Bengaluru.
