Is Preity Zinta Delighted at Mumbai Indians Early Exit From IPL?

Kings XI Punjab might have had an early exit in the IPL but owner Preity Zinta had other reason to rejoice as a video of her reportedly celebrating Mumbai Indians exit has gone viral on social media.

In the video, Zinta was seen talking to her fellow Kings XI supporter and saying “I am just very happy that Mumbai is not going to the finals … really happy.”

Three-times champion Mumbai Indians were knocked out of the tournament as they went down to Delhi Daredevils in their final league game.

Chasing 175 for a win, Mumbai Indians didn’t really have the best of starts as in-form Suryakumar Yadav (12) departed in the first over itself as he tried to hit Sandeep Lamichhane for one boundary too many. With the sluggish wicket not helping the batters, Shreyas Iyer got Amit Mishra into the attack and the wily leg-spinner sent back Ishan Kishan (5). The score read 57/2 even as Evin Lewis tried to keep up the ante.

But Mishra ensured that he had the last laugh with Lewis (48 off 31 balls) being stumped easily by Rishabh Pant. Lamichhane then dismissed Kieron Pollard (7) and Krunal Pandya (4) in quick succession as the scoreboard read 78/5. Skipper Rohit Sharma did try to stitch a partnership with Hardik Pandya as the two looked to pick the singles and hit the timely boundary.
