Kings XI Punjab’s Indian Premier League (IPL) 2016 campaign has more or less over and a revelation which was made on Friday has just made their situation worse in the ninth edition of IPL. Shaun Marsh reportedly was sent back after he had a brawl with an unmanned teammate in the dressing room. Initially the franchise said Shaun Marsh suffered a back injury which has ruled out the Australian from the remainder of IPL 2016. According to sources, Marsh was the first one to throw a punch. Soon after the incident, David Miller was axed as Punjab’s skipper and Murali Vijay was named his replacement.
According to Deccan Chronicle, the source has suggested that team CEO Fraser Castellino could be one of the fall guys for Punjab’s debacle of a season. Earlier, there was news about Punjab’s co-owner Preity Zinta had lashed out at her side’s head coach Sanjay Bangar after Punjab’s one-run defeat against Royal Challengers Bangalore. However Preity clarified later in a Facebook post that the news was absolutely fake. Here is what she said:
Even Bangar cleared the rumours on social media about any fight with the actress. He said, “After our one run defeat against RCB, there was the usual post match discussion on the match with Kings XI owners. Some reports in the media have blown the issue totally out of proportion by fabricating a non-existent chain of events..loss by close margin hurts but team has been playing good cricket. No reported abusive or disrespectful language was against me. Kings XI will continue to fight for its survival in the tournament.”
