KXIP denies allegation of damage in dressing roomNew Delhi: Kings XI Punjab denied allegation that the members of the team had damaged the dressing room during their IPL match against Pune Warriors on April 8.

The Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) had lodged a complaint with IPL authorities against Kings XI Punjab team for damaging the dressing room.

"Kings XI Punjab would like to clarify that none of its players is responsible for any damage in the dressing room during Pune Warriors and KXIP match in Sahara Stadium on Sunday, April 08, 2012 as reported by some of the press," COO, Col. Arvinder Singh said in a press release.

"The news is totally baseless and speculative. KXIP is a team that believes in fair play and our players have the maturity to play the game in true spirit," he added. Earlier, in their complaint to the IPL Chairman Rajiv Shukla, MCA officials said that Kings XI Punjab captain Adam Gilchrist had broken the dressing room door in a fit of rage after being dismissed for just six runs.

As per the procedure for such incidents, Shukla forwarded the complaint to the match referee for disciplinary action.

But after preliminary inquiries, it was found that the damage was caused by Paul Valthaty and not by Gilchrist, according to IPL sources.

Valthaty, however, escaped any punishment as the damage was caused accidentally and not intentionally.

Kings XI Punjab had lost the match by 22 runs and Gilchrist (6) and Valthaty (1) did not contribute much with the bat.
