Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi
The Feroz Shah Kotla was originally a fortress built by Sultan Ferozshah Tughlaq to house his version of Delhi city called Ferozabad. The Feroz Shah Kotla was established as a cricket ground in 1883. Kotla has played host to 30 Test matches and the home teamhas not lost a single Test match at the venue since 1987. The Kotla is also famously played witness to Anil Kumble’s 10 wicket haul in a single innings against Pakistan in 1999 – only the 2nd time in the history of test cricket after Jim Laker of England had done it against Australia during the Ashes in 1956. The ground underwent renovation in 2005, just in time to host the sixth and the final game of the ODI series against Pakistan. The Kotla is now the home venue for the Delhi Daredevils side in the IPL.
