Virender Sehwag has ended his association with Kings XI Punjab, the former India opener announced the news on twitter.
He was appointed the mentor of the team before the start of the 2016. Before that, Sehwag spent two seasons with KXIP as a player.
“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,” he tweeted.
Sehwag had reportedly got into a spat with co-owner Preity Zinta during last season. There was a public fall-out between the two after Punjab’s loss to Rajasthan Royals. Punjab finished one off the bottom of the league last season after an good start.
Sehwag became a KXIP player in 2014. He played 25 matches and scored 554 runs. He also scored a century against Chennai Super Kings in the IPL 2014 Qualifier 2, when they reached their maiden IPL final. However, they lost to Kolkata Knight Riders .
