This IPL seems to be filled with twists and turn in the matches. Many players have been ruled out because of injuries while some of the players didn’t play any match this year. Recently, a big news has come from Delhi Daredevils, whose skipper Gautam Gambhir has been stepped down. The decision was taken by Gambhir himself because he was unable to handle the pressure of the team as they have lost 5 matches out of 6.
Well, his fans get shocked with this that they won’t be able to see him as a skipper. But, they all have praised him for his decision. He announced this shocking news during the press conference and also announced another big decision that no one has taken before in IPL. Gambhir said that he will play free for IPL and let go his entire IPL salary i.e. 2.8 crores.
According to him, his team didn’t play well and unable to win the single match in IPL. Therefore, he found the decision justified. As, earlier, he also announced that anyhow he will win the IPL trophy for his team. But, something went wrong and the team got disappointment after losing 5 matches.
However, whatever be his decision, Twitterati have shown respect for him and poured the good wishes for him.
Here’s how everyone reacted to Gautam’s big decision:

Gautam Gambhir is like Rahul Dravid who only played for the country and team but never got his share of it which was given to Sachin, Ganguly in case of Dravid.— Mohan...🇮🇳 (@iamnavamohan) April 25, 2018
Gambhir had a great contribution in winning us T20 WC nd 2011WC but that fame went to Dhoni.
