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. - Virender Sehwag, Former Indian cricketer
Sehwag's decision to quit Punjab comes soon after he reportedly had a fight with the team co-owner Preity Zinta. According to media reports, there was a fight between the two after Punjab's loss to Rajasthan Royals.
However, Zinta later clarified that that "a conversation between Viru & me has been blown out of proportion & suddenly I'm a Villian."
Despite a brilliant start to the season under the captaincy of Ravichandran Ashwin, Punjab failed to maintain its performance in the second part of 2018 and finished second last with six wins and eight losses in 14 matches.
They finished just two points above at the bottom.
