Preity Zinta Clarifies Her Statement on the Viral ‘Rohit Sharma as PBKS Captain’ Quote: ‘Fake, Baseless. Never Discussed Him’

Punjab Kings’ co-owner Preity Zinta took to her Twitter account to clarify her statement on a quote related to her that has been circulated on various social media platforms over the past few days.

Talking about the quote, Preity Zinta said she would bet her life to ‘bring Rohit Sharma’ to Punjab Kings and make him the captain of the franchise. Since then, the quote has been dominating the internet.

Sharing her side of the story over her ‘fake’ quote, Preity Zinta talked about Mumbai Indians at great length, and how her viral quote puts Shikhar Dhawan in a negative light as he is the current captain of the team. The post says,

“These articles are a perfect example of how misinformation is picked up without any verification and circulated online. I humbly request all media to refrain from circulating this and embarrassing all concerned parties. All I want to say is that we have a great team currently, and our only focus is to win games and make the most out of #IPL2024. Thank you. @PunjabKingsIPL.”

Punjab Kings, led by Shikhar Dhawan, are currently suffering a lot in this IPL season as the team has been placed in 8th position on the IPL 2024 points table.

Regarding Rohit Sharma, this is not the first time a franchise has shown interest in him. Earlier, Justin Langer, head coach of Lucknow Super Giants, also spoke of getting Rohit Sharma in their team.

Shikhar Dhawan will not be playing in the match against Mumbai Indians because of his shoulder injury. Sam Curran, an all-rounder, will be taking his spot.
