The game between Mumbai Indians (MI) and Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) was of the highest quality. It kept the fans glued to their seats and there were no nails left by the time this match finished. Things boiled down to the final ball of the match and it was the home team which prevailed. KXIP owner Preity Zinta seemed to be thrilled after this encounter.
Despite her side losing this match, she seemed to be proud of the way the team played in the game. This match witnessed KL Rahul notch up his maiden century in the IPL. This knock, however, went in vain after the Kieron Pollard blitzkrieg in the second innings. The Trinidadian was unstoppable and every ball was disappearing into the stands. It’s been a while since he’s played that way and that has got the fans thrilled.
Chin up boys, tweets Preity
Pollard took just 31 balls to score 83 runs. Single-handedly, he helped turn the fortunes in his team’s favour. Even though the 31-year-old got out four runs shy of a victory, Alzarri Joseph did well enough to help his team get over the line. After this game, Preity Zinta put up a special tweet to cheer the team up.
In her tweet, she joked that she cannot handle the last ball finishes anymore. She wrote that the match was an absolute thriller and even congratulated the winners, the Mumbai Indians. However, she asked her team to keep their chins up and congratulated opener KL Rahul for his century in the match.
“What a thriller this game was. I don’t know if I can handle last ball finishes anymore Well played Mumbai Chin up
@lionsdenkxip & congrats for the @klrahul11 #Saddapunjab #MIvsKXIP #VivoIPL,” Preity Zinta wrote in her tweet.
