Kolkata: April 23, 2013 

As her team was playing against Delhi Daredevils in the national capital, co-owner Preity Zinta was seen enjoying the Chris Gayle onslaught sitting in a coffee shop of a five-star hotel in the city, raising some eyebrows.

Always seen cheering her team during their matches, Preity however opted to skip the match at the Feroze Shah Kotla as she was spotted at the Knight Riders team hotel.

“Clad in a salwar kameez, Zinta was watching live telecast of the Chris Gayle onslaught against Pune Warriors at the hotel’s coffee shop,” an eyewitness at the hotel said, adding that the Kings XI co-owner was here since yesterday.

Kings XI team manager was not available for a comment.

The Adam Gilchrist-led team is scheduled to arrive here tomorrow, ahead of the match against Kolkata Knight Riders here on March 26.
