The IPL may have shifted to UAE, but there is no stopping Preity Zinta, who was back in the stands cheering for her team Kings XI Punjab.
The Kings XI co-owner, who travelled to Dubai earlier this month, completed her mandatory seven-day quarantine and also cleared three COVID-19 tests.
It must have been a different setting for Preity this time around with no crowds in the stands cheering for her and the Kings XI team at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, in Dubai on Sunday.
However, the evening didn't turn out to plan for Preity and the KXIP as they lost a thrilling game against Delhi Capitals via the Super Over.
Meanwhile, it was all smiles in the Delhi camp as Owner Parth Jindal enjoyed the victory with his friends and family as his team made a winning start to the tournament.
