IPL 2017: Twitterati slam Aakash Chopra for questioning Rahul Dravid's tactics for Delhi Daredevils this season

New Delhi: Delhi Daredevils secured a thrilling victory over Gujarat Lions in their previous match, thanks to youngster Shreyas Iyer's incredible 96 off 57 balls. The win however couldn't guide the capital franchise into the play-offs of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017.

Despite Delhi coming out as winners from the clash, former Indian cricketer Aakash Chopra criticised their policy to invest excessively in youth.

"You get brilliance & inconsistency from youth. #DD rode on their brilliance but didn't invest in experience to cover for their inconsistency," Chopra tweeted.

What is your take? Is lack of experienced players the reason behind Delhi Daredevils' inability to enter play-offs of IPL 2017?
