The Delhi and District Cricket Association can name a stand at the Arun Jaitely Stadium after Chetan Chauhan, who succumbed to multiple organ failure after catching the COVID-19 infection.
The proposal to dedicate a stand in the honour of former India opener and cricket administrator will be discussed at the next Apex Council meeting, DDCA joint secretary Rajan Manchanda has said.
Chauhan had represented India in 40 Test matches as the opening partner of legendary Sunil Gavaskar. Chauhan had also served the Delhi cricket as a DDCA vice-president and the chief selector.
“I have got numerous requests from our members that DDCA should do something in honour of Chetan ji’s memory. Most members want a stand to be named after him. I would take up the matter in the next apex council meeting,” Manchanda told national news agency PTI.
DDCA has two gates in the name of Virender Sehwag and Anjum Chopra whereas there are four stands in the name of MAK Pataudi, Mohinder Amarnath, Bishan Singh Bedi and Gautam Gambhir with pavilion named after current India captain Virat Kohli.
