Gautam Gambhir quits as Delhi Daredevils captain

April 26, 2018

After a string of defeats which has left Delhi Daredevils (DD) languishing at the bottom of the points table in the ongoing IPL, the captain of the team, former India opener Gautam Gambhir, stepped down from his post yesterday.

Shreyas Iyer will take charge from Friday’s match against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at Ferozeshah Kotla.

Gambhir’s decision, which one thought was round the corner given his poor form this year, comes as a precedence of sorts and a signal for other struggling Indian veterans in the IPL.

It is learnt that Gambhir has offered to forego his entire fee he was due to receive as per the contract with the Daredevils. “Gambhir doesn’t mind letting go of the Rs.2.80 crore as he feels he has not done the job he was bought in for. He will take a call on his future as a player once the IPL ends,” sources said.
