Kings XI Punjab on Sunday failed to make it to the play-offs of the 2018 Indian Premier League (IPL) as the Ravichandran Ashwin-led side suffered a five-wicket defeat at the hands of Chennai Super Kings at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Pune on Sunday. KXIP players were seen dejected after failing to enter the knock out stage of the tournament. But their co-owner Preity Zinta found different reason to be happy. Preity was happy because defending champions Mumbai Indians did not qualify for the playoffs.
In a video that has gone viral on Twitter, Preity Zinta is seen talking to one of the Kings XI Punjab staff members. The video has no audio but she seems to be saying, “I am just very happy that Mumbai Indians is knocked out. Really happy.”
KXIP ended their journey with 7th position in IPL2018.
