IPL 2017: Twitterati slam Aakash Chopra for questioning Rahul Dravid's tactics for Delhi Daredevils this season
In his tweet, Chopra claimed that youngsters' inexperience cost Delhi Daredevils a place in the IPL 2017 playoffs.
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

"You get brilliance & inconsistency from youth. #DD rode on their brilliance but didn't invest in experience to cover for their inconsistency," Chopra tweeted.
Seeing the former Indian cricketer question Daredevils' coach Rahul Dravid's tactics and mentality, Twitterati slammed the former Delhi batsman:
@cricketaakash Pls u should not talk abt experience..coming from a person who has hardly played 10 matches frm india is not worth it..

@cricketaakash That's what DRAVID believes in & experiments with- the Process of Growing Up for the youngsters important for him than the product-winning!

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