Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Delhi Daredevils director TA Sekar stepped down from his post due to personal reasons. Delhi Daredevils chief executive Hemant Dua confirmed that the former India fast bowler, who was associated with the team since its inception, will no longer be a 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," Dua said in a statement. 

"Sekar was an invaluable asset to the franchise and his departure leaves a vacuum that will be difficult to fill," he added. 

Sekar said he was extremely humbled by the support accorded by the GMR Group. 

"It has been a very difficult decision for me to make, but it was for purely personal reasons. I am 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, who played two Test matches for India in 1982-83, said.
