The actions of the Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) management have made the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) unhappy. These issues were brought up in the IPL Governing Council meeting, which took place a few weeks ago. The Board was supposed to ask the KXIP management to clear out the issues they were facing.
There were a number of issues that came up during the recently concluded IPL 2016. Their co-owners were not in sync with each other and thus these problems cropped up.
One of the instances was when the Bombay High Court ordered to move the IPL matches out of Maharashtra because of the drought situation and one of the co-owners stated that they are okay with moving the matches out of Nagpur, which was considered as KXIP's second home early on during IPL 2016.
In a matter of time, Preity Zinta sent a message to an IPL official saying that KXIP would want to stick to playing in Nagpur.
"The BCCI is upset with how they function. We will be insisting upon them that there should be only one person who will deal with the board. Like with KKR, where Venky Mysore is the lone person, who is in touch with the BCCI. Here in KXIP, everyone is involved in dealing with issues. It has been a cause of embarrassment for the BCCI," a BCCI official was quoted as saying by the Indian Express.
Later, KXIP had issued a statement thanking Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association (HPCA) for allowing them to play their alternative home games in Dharamsala Stadium. After that, Zinta went on to invite Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Vidarbha Singh, because of whom, the India vs Pakistan encounter was moved away and that did not make the current BCCI president Anurag Thakur very happy. The Himachal Pradesh government also did not provide security for the IPL matches and thus KXIP did not play their alternative home matches in Dharamsala.
