A cartoon denigrating a certain community was posted from his Insta account this morning, but it was later removed with an apology.
In the evening, in a statement from the Gujarat Titans PR team, Dayal claimed to have filed a complaint with Instagram management that his official account had been hacked.
Two stories were posted on my Instagram page today – both not mine. I reported this to the authorities because I believe someone else has access to my account and is using it to post.

I respect all communities and the photo posted today does not reveal my true beliefs, a statement released to the media said.Dayal, who plays in the Ranji Trophy for Uttar Pradesh, also played for India A.
