Putting the on-field rivalry of their IPL teams aside, Kings XI Punjab owner Preity Zinta and Royal Challenger Bangalore’s Siddharth Mallya were seen bonding in Chennai.
The two teams clashed at Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore on May 14 and cheering their respective sides from the stands were Siddharth Mallya and Preity Zinta. But guess what? Even as their teams took on each other on field, the two were seen bonding like buddies.
Preity was dressed in a straw hat and white KXIP tee, Siddharth was his usual casual self in an RCB tee.
The match was dominated by Preity’s team Kings XI Punjab as they beat Royal Challengers Bangalore by seven wickets, easily chasing down the target of 175, losing three wickets with 11 balls to spare. Adam Gilchrist returned to form and struck an unbeaten 85 off 54 balls.
An ecstatic Preity Zinta tweeted after the win, “Awesome weather in Bangalore ! Finally my fever turned in2 Cricket fever & I must admit 2night I'm smiling ear 2ear thanx 2 the #KXIP boyz!”
