Hemant Dua steps down as Delhi Daredevils CEO

The decision was on the cards as Daredevils failed to qualify for the knock-out stage even once during his six-year tenure as the CEO

New Delhi: Delhi Daredevils CEO Hemant Dua on Tuesday stepped down from his position, JSW GMR Cricket Private Limited announced. The decision was on the cards as Daredevils failed to qualify for the knock-out stage even once during his six-year tenure as the CEO.

In fact, some of the decisions like paying astronomical amounts to out-of-form players like Yuvraj Singh or Glenn Maxwell had drawn sharp criticism. Daredevils’ disastrous performance during the 2018 edition was the final nail in the coffin.

“DD has been a part of my journey for some time now. The franchise is close to my heart and thus, I will always be available for the betterment of the franchise. I wish DD and it’s new management the very best in its endeavour to bring the trophy to our own city of Delhi,” said Dua.

Their home grounds are the Feroz Shah Kotla Ground in Delhi and the Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Cricket Stadium in Chhattisgarh. qualified for Champions League T20 twice, making the Finals in the 2012 edition.

However, in recent seasons, the team has a strong attack, often ending up as wooden spooners. They appointed the Australian cricketer Ricky Ponting as their Head Coach for the last IPL season.
