The co-owner of Kings XI Punjab, Preity Zinta, seemed very aggressive during the two-day mega auction event of the Indian Premier League (IPL). With the way she was bidding, it seemed as if she wanted every single cricketer from across the globe in her team.
The first player that Punjab brought in its camp was none other Indian spin wizard R Ashwin for a whopping Rs 7.2 crore. After snatching R Ashwin from Chennai Super Kings, Preity Zinta bought Indian opener KL Rahul for the whooping amount of Rs 11 crores.
