Iyer replaces Gambhir

Gautam Gambhir, the Delhi Daredevils captain, stepped down from his post. Shreyas Iyer will take over from Gambhir for the remainder of IPL 2018.

Gambhir was bought by DD in the player auctions in January, and soon after made captain of a team that was expected to break their IPL trophy drought. But the Daredevils have flattered to deceive, with the team losing five out of six games so far to be rooted to the bottom of the table.

Gambhir's form too has been a major cause for worry, with the left-hander scoring in only single digits after a half century in the first game.

"I take full responsibility for the position we are in. And looking at the position, I have decided to step down as captain. Iyer will take over. I still feel we have the team to turn things around this IPL," Gambhir said while addressing the media in Delhi on Wednesday.
