The stands were renamed in honor of the renowned cricketers in the presence of Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann and MP Raghav Chadha. They held a special ceremony before the game, and a lot of prominent figures from the state were present.

Former India off-spinner Harbhajan Singh has had the stadium’s popular terrace block named after him. Harbhajan Singh was instrumental in India’s victories in many tournaments, including the 2011 World Cup and the 2007 T20 World Cup. He took 711 wickets in all three forms while playing 236 ODIs, 103 Tests, and 28 T20 Internationals.

The North Pavilion bears Yuvraj Singh’s name, who was instrumental in India’s victory over the world in 2011. The superb all-rounder was also crucial to India’s victory over Pakistan in the 2007 T20 World Cup final. Yuvraj appeared in 40 Tests, 304 ODIs, and 58 T20Is, scoring 11,778 runs in all and taking 148 wickets in all three competitions.

Yuvraj and Harbhajan shared some pictures from the unique ceremony on their Twitter accounts after being overwhelmed by the honor. On the pitch, they also ran across several Indian cricket players and chatted with them for a while. Yuvraj was able to talk with a few players like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and Hardik Pandya.

Along with Yuvraj and Harbhajan, Bharti Vij, Mahesh Inder Singh, Bhupinder Singh Sr, current India selector Harvinder Singh, and current India batting coach Vikram Rathour were also honored.
