I am very proud to be part of KXIPWe have the best team & support staff & under No circumstance will I tolerate slander towards me or my team, specially when it comes to our Integrity. I will sincerely appreciate it, if responsible media do not try to damage our reputation & business by fueling this false article,” she said.

Kings XI Punjab co-owner Preity Zinta has rubbished reports of her alleging that some of her players were involved in match-fixing in the Indian Premier League (IPL), saying that a constructive conversation had been turned into a destructive article.

She wrote on Twitter, “A constructive conversation to genuinely make a difference to the game is turned into a destructive article for sensational purpose.” Zinta also said that she had just suggested to the BCCI to put players through lie detector tests.

“Shocked by this inaccurate & extremely irresponsible & malicious piece by @IndianExpress #stunned #2shocked2react”, she tweeted.

Earlier, the English daily had reported that Preity Zinta had told BCCI official during her recent meeting that some players of Kings XI Punjab may have indulged in ‘suspicious activities’ linked to throwing matches. According to the reports, she also said that the Indian board’s anti-corruption team has not been able to effectively tackle the menace and added that she wanted to speak on this issue earlier but had no proof.

According to the daily, Zinta cited her study of psychology had allowed her to read the mind of players and understand their body language better than most. Based on her intuition, she had confronted players who she thought were involved in suspicious activities and even dropped them for some matches or from the team as well in some cases. She also claimed that she had warned the other IPL franchises about these players.

When asked about why she didn’t report the incidents before to the board, Zinta claimed that she didn’t have any solid proof and that they could only prevent such players from talking to suspicious individuals or keep tabs on their movements. However, she also added that the board’s anti-corruption unit were ineffective in curbing the menace from their end.
