All’s not well in the Kings XI Punjab camp with report of an altercation between team owner Preity Zinta and mentor Virender Sehwag.

According to the Mumbai Mirror, Zinta had a heated argument with Sehwag following their last game against Rajasthan Royals which the team lost by 15 runs.

In that game, captain Ravi Ashwin batted at No3 ahead of more recognised batsmen.That move didn’t work as Punjab slumped to their third defeat in four games.

The report states Zinta questioned Sehwag’s tactics, which hasn’t pleased the former India batsman. Apparently, Sehwag had earlier spoken to the team’s other owners to rein in Zinta.

Kings XI are third in the points table but recent results have taken the sheen away from a fine start to the IPL 2018 campaign.
