Arun Jaitley Stadium View - IPL 2020

The old name of Arun Jaitley Stadium was Zafar Shah Kotla stadium and it was changed in 2019. It was established in 1883 as Feroz Shah Kotla Ground in New Delhi. After the Eden garden Kolkata, this ground is the second oldest international stadium and still functional in India. Kotla staged its first Test in the 1948-49 season when the mighty West Indies under John Goddard took on India for a five-Test series and the ground has produced some really good performances.

In the 1952 Test against Pakistan, Hemu Adhikari and Ghulam Ahmed were involved in a record tenth wicket stand of 109 runs – a record that still stands. In 1965, S Venkataraghavan, in his debut series, demolished the New Zealand line up with figures of 8 for 72 and 4 for 80. In 1969-70, Bedi and Prasanna combined to spin India to a famous seven-wicket win over Australia, the duo picking 18 wickets between themselves. However, the Kotla’s future as an international venue hangs in the balance when, in December 2009, an ODI between India and Sri Lanka was abandoned due to a dangerous pitch. This stadium is the home ground of Delhi Ranjhi team and Delhi Daredevils.

Further, we have here some descriptions of the stadium which we assume to be beneficial for you.
