Sharma and Kohli were seated holding hands and when Kohli’s name was announced for the pavilion, Sharma kisses Kohli’s hands.

After the virtual unveiling of the stand, Kohli thanked the DDCA, his team members and his childhood coach. While thanking his family, Kohli recalled an incident from 2001 when he had gone to watch a Test match against Zimbabwe with his brother.

“When I left home today, I told my family one anecdote…I remember getting a ticket to watch a game in 2001 at the stadium and asking for autographs from players… So today to have a pavilion in my name at the same stadium is surreal and a great honour,” Kohli said.

Earlier, DDCA president, Rajat Sharma had said that Virat Kohli is the best player in the world.
