Gautam Gambhir has stepped down as captain of Delhi Daredevils after team's dismal performance in the ongoing IPL season.

Shreyas Iyer now will lead the GMR-owned franchise. 

Gambhir said that he couldn't handle the pressure. 

Gambhir has been named skipper of the struggling Daredevils who -- coming off the 2017 IPL season in which they finished sixth on the points table with six wins from 14 games -- again face a very tough road ahead to qualify for the play-offs. 

They currently languish at the bottom of the IPL 11 with one win from six matches.

Daredevils coach Ricky Ponting, CEO Hemant Dua, outgoing captain Gambhir held a press conference at the Feroz Shah Kotla to announce the new captain of the team.
