“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,” said Bangar on his Facebook page.

“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,” he added.

A media report had claimed that Zinta hurled expletives at Bangar after the narrow loss. Zinta too has rubbished the report. “I most definitely DID NOT be disrespectful to our coach nor abuse any one & definitely did not use the FOUR LETTER WORD. Your story reeks of SEXISM and is incorrect & exaggerated beyond words,” she wrote on her Facebook page.

“Sanjay & I BOTH have DENIED this story STILL it gets Printed. I am fed up of this nonsense & negativity. Just because our judicial system is slow some Indian Journalists time and again use it to write ANY & EVERYTHING & make soft targets of celebrities,” she added.

Kings XI Punjab are languishing at the bottom of the points table with seven losses in 10 matches.
