Virender Sehwag has ended his association with  Kings XI Punjab, the Indian Premiere League team. 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 in the last season. There was fall-out between the two after Punjab’s loss to Rajasthan Royals. The team had finished in the second-last place with six wins and eight losses in 14 matches in the 2018 season.

In the 2014 edition of the IPL, Sehwag became a KXIP player. 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 reach their maiden IPL final. However, they lost to Kolkata Knight Riders .
