Mumbai: A day after media reports spread like wildfire regarding an ugly spat between Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) co-owner Preity Zinta and team mentor Virender Sehwag following their loss to the Rajasthan Royals, the Indian Premier League franchise on Saturday rubbish rumors, saying that ‘all is well’ between the duo.

In a report by the Mumbai Mirror on Friday, Zinta lashed out at Sehwag for his tactics that backfired massively in the team’s recent loss. However, as things heated up, KXIP issued a statement stating their transparent culture has been misconstrued and highlighted in a negative manner.

 

"The stories have led to a lot of speculation and we at Kings XI Punjab would like to clearly state that as part of our management process, (as well as other franchisees)  we review our performance on and off the field after each game through both, formal and informal discussions.

This is part of our standard operations review process which helps us to analyse our results and allow us to focus on the improvement required after each game, both on and off the field so that we can continue to improve in all aspects.

The culture in Kings XI is one that is open and non-hierarchical and is one which encourages open and frank debate by one and all across all levels with the common goal of continuous improvement. 

 

It is unfortunate that this open and transparent culture has been misconstrued and highlighted in a negative manner, so as to tarnish and damage our image as well as that of the IPL,” the franchise said in a statement.

Zinta had earlier vented her frustration on Twitter, saying media reports made her seem like the ‘Villain’.

 

"Mumbai Mirror gets it wrong again because we didn’t do Media net & pay them to write articles cuz that’s the only time they get it right. A conversation between Viru & me has been blown out of proportion & suddenly I’m a Villian! Wow! #fakenews," she wrote.
