Gambhir steps down from Daredevils captaincy

Gambhir steps down as Delhi skipper

Gautam Gambhir has stepped down as the captain of the Delhi Daredevils team on Wednesday. He has been replaced by 23-year-old Shreyas Aiyer, but he will continue to be a part of the team. But there has been no change in Delhi's fortunes and they are languishing at the bottom of the table with just one win from six matches. "I was not good enough and that is all", Gambhir said.

Gambhir's decision to quit captaincy got full support from the Delhi Daredevils management and coach Ricky Ponting. Iyer will take over the ongoing season. As I said, my performance was not upto the mark and I just could not handle the pressure. I also fully endorse Shreyas Iyer as the next captain. But with just six games into the season, all that talk seemed to have vanished in thin air and the mammoth task of reigniting Delhi's campaign has fallen on to the shoulders of a young gun. "It was the right time to step down", Gambhir said while addressing the media in Delhi. Mumbai's Shreyas Iyer has been appointed new skipper.

Dua's final tweet on Thursday mentioned Gambhir, in which he said: "For all those crying foul about Gambhir let me be clear, he is the finest man, I have met who is passionate about cricket, works hard and is super committed for success of Delhi Daredevils. his team is the city we all love". And looking at the position, I have chose to step down as DD captain.

Lyft , the second largest United States ride services firm, does not have a formal design group, either. Last year, the Beijing-based company handled 7.4 billion rides, compared with 4 billion trips for Uber.

Gambhir, who played his 58th and most recent Test for India in 2016 against England, has fallen off the selectors' radar. Ponting congratulated Gambhir for the "tough decision". "For the first time in years, we think we've a side that can win the league".

"I would like to thank the management, the coaches and Gauti bhai for selecting me as captain", Iyer said. We absolutely believe we got the group to turn it around. "Make sure he is well prepared and have everything he needs".

According to unconfirmed media reports, Gambhir has also made a decision to forego his contracted salary of Rs2.8 crores for the season and told the team management that would play the rest of the season for free - an unprecedented gesture in the cash-rich league. We've played well for 35 of the 40 overs.
