IPL 2024: Preity Zinta made this mistake in the auction, Punjab Kings did not want this
In the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League, a mistake by Punjab Kings co-owner Preity Zinta has led to the entry of an unwanted player in the team. For the first IPL title, Punjab bid on many cricketers in the player auction held on Tuesday. During this time the team bought an unwanted player.
After this mistake, the Punjab franchise demanded the return of the player, but auctioneer Mallika Sagar refused to do so. According to reports, during this time Mallika Sagar told Punjab Kings that the auction of the player had been completed. In such a situation the decision cannot be changed.
It is noteworthy that when Shashank's name came up in the auction, Bollywood actress Preity Zinta picked up the paddle. Shashank was soon sold as no other team bid for him. He joined the Punjab Kings team for a base price of Rs 20 lakh. The team realized the mistake after the next player bid.
