New Delhi: Kings XI Punjab refuted the reports that Chelsea boss Roman Abramovich is all set to buy the Punjab-based Indian Premier League team.

Kings XI Punjab co-owner Mohit Burman today denied the reports that the Chelsea owner would take over the Kings XI Punjab which, according to reports, are up for sale.

Talking to a private TV channel, Burman agreed that they were talking to the ISIS, a UK-centred private equity firm, for the change of ownership and Abramovich is only a part of ISIS.

But Burman clarified that they won’t sale the team until investigations by Enforcement Directorate and Income Tax are over.
