Preity Zinta’s firm response to viral ‘Rohit Sharma as PBKS captain’ quote: ‘Fake, baseless. Never considered him’ | Cricket

Punjab Kings’ co-owner Preity Zinta has issued a stern statement regarding a viral quote attributed to her about Rohit Sharma potentially becoming the captain of the franchise. The quote, which circulated widely on social media before the Kings’ match against Mumbai Indians, claimed that Zinta was willing to “bet her life” to bring Sharma to the team. However, Zinta clarified that she never discussed the Mumbai Indians’ star in any interviews and that the quote was completely fake and baseless.

Zinta also pointed out that the viral quote was disrespectful towards Shikhar Dhawan, who is the current captain of the Kings and deserves respect. Taking to her official social media account, Zinta expressed her admiration for both Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan, emphasizing that the focus of the team is solely on giving their best performance in the ongoing IPL 2024 season.

Regarding the misinformation spread by the fake quote, Zinta urged the media to refrain from circulating such false information and emphasized the importance of verifying facts before sharing them online. She highlighted the need for accuracy in reporting and urged everyone to focus on supporting the team and making the most out of the IPL 2024 season.

In the recent match against Mumbai Indians, Punjab Kings faced a narrow defeat despite a valiant effort in the 193-run chase. After a shaky start that left them at 49/5, the Kings were able to revive their hopes through impressive innings from Ashutosh Sharma (61) and Shashank Singh (41). However, Ashutosh’s dismissal in the 18th over dashed their chances, and the team fell short by just 9 runs in the final over. Despite the defeat, the Kings showed resilience and determination, keeping their focus on winning games and making progress in the IPL 2024 season.
