“Don’t spread hate” – Yash Dayal issues a apology after he shared a controversial story on his Instagram account

Yash Dayal, the fast bowler of the Gujarat Titans (GT), found himself embroiled in a contentious situation when he posted a controversial story on his Instagram account on Monday. Dayal played a significant role in the GT team, helping them secure consecutive berths in the IPL finals and emerging as champions in the previous season.


Although Dayal promptly removed the story and apologized, claiming it was an inadvertent mistake, screenshots of the post circulated rapidly on social media platforms. Consequently, he garnered considerable attention and became a top trending topic on Twitter.

“Guy’s apologies for the story it was just posted by mistake plz don’t spread hate,” he wrote in another post later.


“Thank you, I have respect for each & every community and society,” he added.

Shortly thereafter, the fast bowler released an additional statement addressing the situation, raising the possibility of his social media account being compromised and reporting the incident to the appropriate authorities. Dayal emphasized his respect for all communities and clarified that the earlier posts did not align with his personal beliefs.

“Dear All, There were two stories posted on my Insta handle today – both of which weren’t done by me,” Dayal clarified.


“I have reported the matter to authorities as I believe my account is being accessed by someone else and used for posting. I am trying to regain full control of my Instagram account. I respect all communities and the picture shared today does not reveal my true beliefs. Thank You, Yash Dayal,” the pacer concluded.

Yash Dayal, a talented 25-year-old left-arm fast bowler, represents Uttar Pradesh in domestic cricket. He made headlines during the IPL mega auctions last year when the Gujarat Titans acquired him for an impressive sum of Rs 3.2 crore.

In his debut season, Dayal played a crucial role in the success of the GT team, taking 11 wickets from nine matches. His outstanding performance contributed to the team’s victory in the championship, defeating the Rajasthan Royals in the final showdown.

However, the IPL 2023 season proved to be a challenging one for the young bowler. Despite his efforts, Dayal managed to secure only two wickets from five matches, making it a forgettable season for him individually. He was also on the receiving end of that Rinku Singh 5 Sixes in Last 5 balls.
