Preity Zinta disappointed over departure of these 4 players from Kings XI Punjab squad

Bollywood actress Preity Zinta, co-owner of Indian Premier League (IPL) team Kings XI Punjab, remained the most entertaining person during the mega-auction event in Bengaluru as she kept bidding for every possible player.


From the moment IPL auctioneer Richard Madley started the proceedings, Preity started her war to purchase every possible marquee player that came up on the big screen.


Preity also managed to get some of the best Indian cricketers Ravichandran Ashwin (7.6 crore INR), Yuvraj Singh (2 crore INR) and KL Rahul (11 crore INR) in her team.

Karun Nair, Aaron Finch, Manoj Tiwary and Andrew Tye are some of the other notable additions to the KXIP squad. However, Preity is disappointed over the departure of former players from the ‘lions den’.


The 42-year-old actress took to Twitter to expresses her disappointment.

“Happy with the #VivoIPLAuction but a bit sad that @ImMananVohra @Gmaxi_32 @shaunmarsh9 & @sandeep25a will not be with us at @lionsdenkxip!”, Preity tweeted.

Manan Vohra, Glenn Maxwell, Shaun Marsh and Sandeep Sharma have been the key players for Kings XI Punjab in previous editions.
