Preity Zinta, the owner of Punjab Kings on Friday clarified about her recent remarks on former Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma and said that she never said that she will “bet her life to get Rohit Sharma" in IPL mega auctions. The actor called such updates “completely fake and baseless" and said that she has great team currently with only one focus to win games.

Earlier, Preity Zinta's remark was breaking internet where she reportedly spoke about getting Rohit Sharma as the captain of Punjab Kings if Mumbai Indians releases him in the IPL mega auctions. “I will bet my life to get Rohit Sharma if he comes in the mega auction. We are only missing a captain in our team who brings on some stability and champion mindset," Preity Zinta reportedly told Star Sports. 

Shikhar Dhawan-led Punjab Kings is suffering from terrible form this season as placed in the 8th position on the IPL 2024 points table.

This is not the first time another franchise has shown interest in Rohit Sharma and wants the former MI skipper to be available during IPL mega auctions later this year. Earlier, Lucknow Super Giants' head coach Justin Langer also spoke about having Rohit Sharma in his team.
