Ankit Dutta, the pitch curator for the DDCA, was chosen to unveil the World Cup trophy at Kotla, which was a wonderful gesture on their part. They also dedicated the events to the groundsmen for the hard effort they put in to transform the event.

The small children were also invited by the DDCA to the trophy reveal because it was a great opportunity for them to take pictures with the coveted trophy. Since it turned out to be a memorable day for them as well, some visually impaired kids were also welcomed to the event.

There will be a large audience at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi for India’s one match versus Afghanistan. While the fans will first get to see the stadium’s transformation on October 7 when South Africa plays Sri Lanka.
