One of the superstars for India in the ODI series against Proteas, Kuldeep Yadav has seen his stock rise with his record-breaking performances in South Africa.
However, the spin ace was left embarrassed due to a vulgar post from his Instagram account on Wednesday.
The 23-year-old claims his account was hacked and issued an apology.
I would like to apologise for the unsolicited post that was posted by my Instagram account in the past few mins .my Instagram account was hacked by someone, I’ll take steps to improve my password protection. Thanks for understanding— Kuldeep yadav (@imkuldeep18) February 20, 2018
An inappropriate photo was posted on the chinaman bowler's Instagram account.
The Uttar Pradesh lad took down the photo as soon as it came to his notice.
The spin ace, who was the top wicket-taker in India vs South Africa ODI series with 17 scalps to his name, immediately clarified that he wasn't responsible for the post and issued an apology to his followers.
The Indian cricketer is the latest to join the long list of celebrities, whose social media accounts have been recently hacked.
Just last week, India's only individual Olympic gold medallist and ace shooter Abhinav Bindra's official Twitter account was hacked and a few tweets were put out on his Twitter handle.
