Yash Dayal apologizes

Dayal took down his post, but not before screenshots were shared and debated widely on social-media. Dayal eventually posted this apology on Instagram stories: “Guy’s [sic] apologies for the story it was just posted by mistake plz don’t spread hate … I have respect for each & every community n society”.

Dayal, 26, has been playing cricket since 2018, when he made his senior debut for Uttar Pradesh. He gained popularity this year when, in a game in Ahmedabad, Kolkata Knight Riders’ Rinku Singh hit him for five consecutive sixes off the last five balls of the match to chase down an improbable target.

He didn’t turn out for Titans for over a month after that, but played two more games as Titans made the tournament final, which they lost to Chennai Super Kings. Dayal had a forgettable season overall, picking up two wickets from five matches at an economy rate of 11.78.

Bought by Titans before IPL 2022, Dayal played nine games in the team’s run to the title in what was their debut season, picking up 11 wickets and maintaining an economy rate of 9.25.
