Furthermore DDCA also unveiled a new pavilion stand at the Feroz Shah Kotla after skipper virat kohli, who recently became the most successful india captain in Test cricket, surpassing ms dhoni. Accordingly a short video and an animation film on Kohli's journey from being an U-19 player to india captain was also shown.

DDCA President Rajat Sharma said "When I decided to name a stand in honour of virat kohli, I told this first to Arun Jaitleyji. He told me this is a good decision because there is no better player than Virat in world cricket". Apparently the unveiling ceremony was held at the Weightlifting Hall of the jawaharlal nehru Stadium and besides the family members of Jaitley, the gala evening was also attended by Sport Minister Kiren Rijiju, former sports minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari, ex-skipper kapil dev and former india opener Chetan Chauhan, among others.
