Preity Zinta’s pep-up talk before the big game against Mumbai Indians worked wonders for Kings XI Punjab. The Mohali home-boys trashed their opponents sending them crashing to only their third loss this season.
Though why Sachin Tendulkar decided to field first on winning his first toss in nine games is beyond my understanding. MI have done extremely well batting first.
What he said:
“Now we are in such a situation where another loss would mean that we are out of the competition. Not a great feeling.”
Yuvraj Singh fancying Pune Warriors India’s chances on the eve of their big game against Mumbai Indians.
What he meant:
“It’s make-or-break for Pune Warriors. God help us.”
What he definitely didn’t:
“It’ll be a wonderful opportunity for me to take a break from some cricket after the trials and tribulations of the World Cup. Dada’s here and he can come up with some Dadagiri.”
