Mohali: Kings XI Punjab captain Kumar Sangakkara and Yuvraj Singh dismissed reports of a rift between them here on Thursday in Mohali.
Stories are doing the rounds that Yuvraj, going through a prolonged bad patch in the Twenty20 tournament, is sulking after losing captaincy to Sangakkara, who doesn't enjoy the full support of some players.
Sangakkara, who is back at the helm after serving a one-match ban for the team's repeated slow over-rate, however, begged to differ and said all negative stories stem from the outfit's poor performance in IPL 3.
"These stories come out when the team is losing and not doing well. There is no rift," Sangakkara said.
