Vastavam web: Having relinquished captaincy of Delhi Daredevils, Gautam Gambhir has decided to forego his entire Rs 2.8 crore salary while taking responsibility for the team’s disastrous run in the ongoing Indian Premier League.It is possibly the first time that an IPL captain has decided to forego his salary because of non performance.
Gambhir resigned from captaincy after Delhi Daredevils lost five of their six games with the skipper managing a meagre 85 runs opening the batting, including a half century in the first game.”Gautam is someone who puts pride above everything else. He has been a proud performer. He doesn’t want to take any money and it’s a very personal call. In fact, he wanted to quit just after the KXIP game,” the source added.While he is still available for the season as a player, he will take a call on his future only after the IPL gets over.
