The incident took place at the PCA Stadium in Mohali after Marsh was ruled out in a controversial manner in the 14th over. He edged a Brett Lee delivery to KKR wicketkeeper Manvinder Bisla, who claimed a clean catch, even though TV replays suggested otherwise. Kings XI captain Adam Gilchrist’s had to calm Zinta down after she exchanged few words with match officials.
