The co-owner of the Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) franchise in the Indian Premier League (IPL), Preity Zinta, fired shots at her own team as they ended up in another nail-biting finish on Thursday. Kings XI Punjab locked horns with Royal Challengers Bangalore in match 31 of IPL 2020.
Winning the toss, RCB elected to bat first and scored a total of 171 runs for the loss of 6 wickets in their 20 overs as their skipper Virat Kohli top-scored for them, smashing 48 runs. Chasing the target, KXIP opened with KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal despite having Chris Gayle in their ranks. The move paid off as both the batsmen stitched yet another beautiful partnership with the bat.
After Agarwal’s dismissal, Chris Gayle also joined the party, and Gayle and Rahul smashed scintillating half-tons. However, quite in tandem to what KXIP have been doing all the while in IPL 2020, choked in the final overs.

Kings XI Punjab needed just 2 runs in the final over to seal their second win of IPL 2020. However, the game went down to the wire as Punjab choked once again in the death. Nicholas Pooran came out to bat on the last ball of the innings with only 1 run to win and Pooran finally smashed a six off the final ball to give rejoice to all the KXIP supporters.
After the game, their co-owner, Preity Zinta was seen celebrating in the dugout. She later took to Twitter and expressed her anxiety as KXIP seemed to lose another game from a winning position.
Preity wrote, “Finally a much needed win for US Wish our team wouldn’t give heart attacks to people in the name of cricket. Statutory Warning @lionsdenkxip games are not for the faint hearted. I really admired the fight back from the RCB Bowlers in the end.
