The Delhi District Cricket Association (DDCA) has finally accepted a proposal to rename Gate No. 2 of the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium in honour of former India opener and local Delhi boy, Virender Sehwag.
“The erstwhile management had in recognition of Mr. Virender Sehwag’s many accomplishments promised to name Gate no. 2 as the Virender Sehwag gate and I am giving effect to that promise,” said DDCA administrator, Justice (retired) Vikramjit Sen, in a statement on Monday (October 23).
“This is the first of many other initiatives that are being implemented to recognize the contribution of cricketers who have richly contributed to the DDCA. A Committee has been formed to assess and recommend other stalwarts from DDCA whose contribution should be recognized and reflected at various parts of the stadium,” he added.
