GAUTAM GAMBHIR has resigned as the captain of IPL 2018 bottom-ranker Delhi Daredevils. The team management announced the move and the appointment of Shreyas Iyer as the new captain in a tweet.

With Delhi winning just one of their six matches played so far, Gambhir, who was the captain of Kolkata Knight Riders till 2017, stepped down with immediate effect.

“True, that I’ve stepped down from DD captaincy. Just to clarify it was my call, nothing from the management or coaching staff,” Gambhir said in a tweet.

“I haven’t contributed enough… I had to take the responsibility being the leader of the ship. I feel it was the right time,” Gambhir said in a televised press conference.
