Gautam Gambhir has left the captaincy of Delhi Daredevils in IPL. In the remaining matches of IPL, Shreyas Iyer will captain Delhi Daredevils. So far, Delhi’s performance in this IPL season has not been as expected. The team has played six matches, out of which it has won only 1 match.
Delhi has made the Gambhir the captain this time. Gambhir has been the captain of Kolkata Knight Riders for many years before this. In his captaincy, KKR won the title of IPL twice, but this magic could not work for Delhi team.
Taking responsibility for Delhi’s poor performance in the 11th season of IPL, Gambhir said, I take full responsibility for the situation in which we are. And considering the situation, I decided to quit as captain.
Shreyas Iyar will take over responsibility. I still feel that there is a need to change things in our team. He said I could not bear the pressure of captaincy, so decided to leave the captaincy. This is my own decision. There is no pressure on the franchises on me. I spoke to my wife at the time of my decision.
Gambhir said It was my decision. I have not contributed enough to the team. Being a captain, I had to take responsibility. I think it was the right time. Shreyas Iyer has been a great performer this season so far on becoming captain, young Shreyas Iyer said, I want to thank the management and my coach for appointing the team as the captain. This is a great honour for me.
