Shreyas Iyer has now been named the captain of Delhi Daredevils team as Gautam Gambhir steps down as skipper with immediate effect.
Delhi Daredevils is going through yet another dismal season at Indian Premiere League with only one win out of six matches. They are at the bottom of the table, right below Mumbai Indians.
In a press conference at the Feroz Shah Kotla, Gambhir said: “It was my decision. I haven’t contributed enough to the team. I had to take the responsibility being the leader of the ship. I feel it was the right time.”
23 year old Shreyas Iyer is in extremely good form and he’s going to lead the Delhi Daredevils team for the rest of the IPL Tournament. Hopefully, this decision will turn around things for Delhi.
