The bubbly Preity Zinta had little to cheer about in IPL 6 as her team, Kings XI Punjab, failed to qualify for the play-offs.

But even while her Adam Gilchrist-led 'kings' missed out on a last four berth by a whisker, the seasoned actress did make quite a few heads turn during the season.

Shilpa beats Preity in Battle of Bollywood beauties

Being the first actress to own an IPL team, Preity acquired the tag of 'sexy' woman of the IPL, and over the years maintained her crown of 'best dressed woman' in the cash-rich T20 tournament.

For the first few matches of Kings XI Ms Zinta sported a bright red knee length fitting dress.

Check straw hat, check oversized sun glasses... and the Bollywood actress sizzled... and how!

The famous dimpled smile flashed off and on during her team's campaign, but that did not stop Preity from giving away Kings XI Punjab merchandise to fans.

It comes naturally for this 'Liril girl' to wear the right outfit at the right place.

Preity not only charmed home fans with her famous dimpled smile but also her Punjabi makeover.

Clad in a maroon Salwaar-Kameez, with bangles and bindi, she looked a true-blue Punjabi girl.

This season, her cheering did not have much of an effect on the Punjab side. Inconsistency cost them a couple of close matches.

Hopefully, with a little bit of luck, next season will be better.

Preity likes to be where the real action is: the cricket field.

Call her a sporty chic, glamour queen or whatever, she looks elegant attired in her team jersey and red knee length tight fitted skirt.

And just when one thought Preity sported just the official hues of her team -- red and white -- she turned up with an orange outfit in Mohali.

It was a crucial tie; her team was up against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Was the change lucky? 

No, the fashionista's team was spanked. Darren Sammy claimed four wickets for 22 runs as Hyderabad won by 30 runs to keep themselves in the hunt for a play-offs berth.

Right from the inaugural season, in 2008, the bubbly Preity has charmed fans at IPL matches.

As this sixth edition comes to an end, here's thanking her for the many memorable moments she left fans with. Sure, with a little more luck more success will come her way next season.
