“For me, that is the stadium where I grew up playing age-group Ranji cricket. I also played for India there. Those memories stay fresh in your mind. You can feel it because that is where everything started, selectors saw you for the first time and gave you an opportunity. It is special to go back and play at Arun Jaitley Stadium.”

During the conversation with Rahul, Kohli acknowledged feeling uncomfortable when playing in front of a pavilion bearing his name. He expressed that being honored in this way was unexpected, and he had never imagined such a recognition would come his way. He stated,

“It is awkward for me to be playing in front of a pavilion named after me. I do not like to talk about it a lot. But it is a great honour and I feel happy and grateful about it, it is something I never felt would happen to me,”
