Feroz Shah Kotla stadium

Delhi District Cricket Association (DDCA) run Feroz Shah Kotla ground is undergoing a facelift - one that has been going on for more than two years.
The last one-dayer of 2004-05 India-Pakistan series - witnessed by Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf - was almost called off due to unfinished pillars shooting into the sky and under construction stands concealed under tarpaulin.
The Kotla established way back in 1883, staged its first Test in the 1948-49 season when the mighty West Indies took on India for a five Test series. The ground has produced a number of great performances, but most memorable of them all is Anil Kumble's 10-wicket haul in an innings against Pakistan in 1999.
