Delhi Daredevils had yet another disastrous IPL season, finishing at the bottom of the points table. While they did improve towards the back end of the tournament - winning their last two games - there were a lot of concerns for most of the campaign.

Most of their big name players simply did not step up and it was Rishab Pant's heroics that prevented them from being truly embarrassed in the competition.

They will look to address these issues ahead of the next season and get rid of some of the underperforming players.

Here is a list of five players Delhi Daredevils might drop for IPL 2019:

#5 Gautam Gambhir

Not many captains would have had the guts to step down from captaincy but that is exactly what Gautam Gambhir did following Delhi's disastrous start to the season.

Gambhir was supposed to be the one to lead Delhi to their maiden IPL title, but things did not pan out that way. The southpaw not only struggled with the armband, but with his batting as well as he managed just 85 runs in six games at a horrendous strike rate of 96.5.

With Shreyas Iyer captaining the side for the remainder of the season and doing fairly decently, he will be expected to lead them next season as well, meaning Gambhir will be surplus to requirements and could be dropped.
