Preity’s pretty smile is back…

Yes! Yesterday was the day when Bollywood Actress Preity Zinta finally got a pretty smile back on her face after Kings XI Punjab defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore in a closely fought encounter. Preity could be seen glued to the action in the stadium with Mr. I.S. Bindra also in the background, when Yuvraj finally hit the winning runs with a straight six over long-off region to register the much awaited win for Kings XI Punjab.

Yuvraj who scored an unbeaten 106 was greatly helped by Ravi Bopara, who got out trying to hit a six over long-on when Kings XI were just 16 odd runs away from victory with nearly 3 overs to spare. Bopara made a valuable contribution of 84 runs, and he along with Yuvraj scripted the 7 wicket win for Punjab in the yesterday’s encounter against Royal Challengers from Bangalore.

Earlier in the day, Kevin Peterson won the toss and the Riyal Challengers posted a fighting total thanks to a brisk 62 off just 46 balls by Kallis, who helped Bangalore Royal Challengers compile a total of 168rund for the loss of nine wickets in their allotted 20 Overs. But later on, the Royal Challengers’ bowlers failed to contain the Punjab batsmen, going for plenty in their allotted quota with the only exception of Anil Kumble who conceded just 19 runs off his 4 overs and also took a wicket.

 

With this 2nd consecutive loss now, Royal Challengers’ Bangalore must be under great pressure now; and will need to win their coming games to keep alive the hope of a semifinal birth.
