Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) co-owner, Preity Zinta has cleared the air over her recent statement on Mumbai Indian’s (MI) loss to Delhi Daredevils (DD), that is going around on social media.

Meanwhile, in a video, Zinta was seen in a video telling to someone about her excitement. Mumbai’s hopes of making it to the playoffs ended, as they lost to bottom-placed Delhi by 11 runs.

I am very happy that Mumbai is knocked out…. finally happy,” Zinta said in the video.

Chasing a staggering total of 174 runs, some brilliant bowling display from Delhi bowlers ended Mumbai’s hopes. The spinning duo of Amit Mishra and Sandeep Lamichhane were brilliant with the ball.

Previously, Delhi posted a staggering total of 174 for the loss of four wickets in 20 overs. Rishabh Pant once again led the Delhi unit with a well made 64 off 44 deliveries. All-rounder Vijay Shankar, who found his form in the latter half of the league also contributed with 43 crucial runs.

Zinta clarifies her statement:

After a lot of speculations over her statement, Zinta has finally come out to clear the air. The Bollywood actress explained her statement in detail and admitted that it was of no use.

Meanwhile, Punjab lost their must-win match against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on Sunday (May 20) night and crashed out of playoffs contention.

Preity Zinta said that if teams leave it till the end then you have to look out for other team’s performances.

“Relax! Only if Mumbai was “Knocked Out” Punjab would have had a chance of getting to the playoffs but RR (Rajasthan Royals) was happier we were knocked out by CSK (Chennai Super Kings) because they got to go to playoffs! When you leave it till the end one has to not just see your wins but other teams losses as well,” Zinta tweeted.
