On Tuesday, the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) announced that the iconic Feroz Shah Kotla stadium is to be renamed "Arun Jaitley Stadium" in memory of the former finance minister who passed away on Saturday. However, the name of the Feroz Shah Kotla ground remains unchanged. The DDCA announced the decision to rename the stadium in a tweet:

Rajat Sharma, president of the DDCA, wrote in a tweet, "In a fitting tribute to its former President #ArunJaitley , Delhi and District Cricket Association has decided to name Ferozeshah Kotla stadium as Arun Jaitley Stadium."

Soon after the announcement, several people began Googling the history of the ground and the stadium as is very natural. However, what was really amusing is how a large number of people also Googled veteran actor Feroz Khan after the announcement. Khan, a prominent actor of the 70s and 80s, passed away in 2009. Yet, it turns out, a fair number of people seemed to think that the stadium had been named after him in the first place.

But that's not really the case. In case you're unaware of the history of the ground, we've got you covered. Feroz Shah Kotla was a fortress which adorned the city of Firozabad, built by Firoz Shah Tughlaq, brother of Mohammed Bin Tughlaq.

In case you don't believe us, here are a few screenshots for your reference. When we checked Google trends, we found that "Feroz Khan" was one of the top related queries.
