It was a poignant moment when India captain Virat Kohli recollected his days as an U-14 and U-16 cricketer with Bedi as the coach. "I remember when I played U-14 and U-16's for Delhi, Bedi sir would make us train too much. Now that's become a part of my life," Kohli fondly recollected in presence of Delhi legends and Sharmila Tagore, wife of former India captain Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi. It was an evening to remember where the legends of Delhi Cricket came together for the inauguration of stands named after Bishan Singh Bedi and Mohinder Amarnath.

"It's a huge honour to stand with all Delhi captains. I myself have been a Delhi captain," said Kohli. Bedi on his part said: "I may not agree with some of his gestures on field but I have not seen someone more intense than Virat on field. I have never seen an Indian more intense than Virat. He will mellow down for sure but how much I have learnt watching Virat is unreal."
