In December last year, Bedi had protested against the Delhi and District Cricket Association's (DDCA) decision to name the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium after its late ex-president and former union minister Arun Jaitley. He had threatened to take legal action against the DDCA if his name was not removed from a spectators' stand at the stadium.
