TA Sekar on Thursday stepped down from the position of director of Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Delhi Daredevils due to personal reason.
Delhi Daredevils Chief Executive Hemant Dua confirmed that the former India fast bowler, who has been associated with Delhi Daredevils since its inception, will no longer be part of the franchise.
"We respect Sekar's decision. We are naturally very disappointed to not have Sekar in our midst going forward, but as a franchise we clearly understand his position. Sekar was an invaluable asset to the franchise and his departure leaves a vacuum that will be difficult to fill," Dua said.
Sekar, on the other hand, said he was extremely humbled by the support accorded by the franchise.
"It has been a very difficult decision for me to make, but it was for purely personal reasons. I'm grateful for the support and understanding of the franchise. It has been an absolute privilege being part of the franchise since its inception in 2008," Sekar said.
