Earlier this year, the alleged spat between Kings XI Punjab owner Preity Zinta and Virender Sehwag during the IPL 2018 grabbed headlines. The story was done after Kings XI Punjab lost to Rajasthan Royals and apparently, Preity had slammed the Sehwag for wrong strategies. However, the actress later clarified that a normal conversation with Viru was blown out of proportion by the media house. She took to Twitter and slammed the newspaper for putting out such a report.  IPL 2018: Preity Zinta SLAMS Virender Sehwag After KXIP’s Loss Against Rajasthan Royals?

But now, Virender Sehwag has decided to quit from his role of a mentor for Kings XI Punjab. Which means, Sehwag will no longer be a mentor of the team for IPL 2019. The Sultan of Multan took to social media to announce his exit from the team. He took to Twitter and wrote, “All good things must come to an end and I've had a wonderful time at Kings 11 Punjab, for 2 seasons as a player and 3 as a mentor. My association with Kings 11 comes to an end and I am thankful for the time I have had here and wish the team all the very best for the times ahead.” IPL 2018: Preity Zinta Says a Conversation Between Her & Virender Sehwag Has Been Blown Out of Proportion.
