Punjab Kings' owner and actor Preity Zinta shared a new photograph of her twins as they watched her IPL team beat Royal Challengers Bangalore by five wickets on Sunday.
Zinta, who usually refrains from revealing her babies' faces, tweeted a picture of Jai and Gia resting on a bed in front of a television with the IPL 2022 match playing on screen."New team, new Captain and new fans! Thank you Punjab Kings for such a fantastic run chase and for making Jai and Gia’s first IPL game so memorable, I cannot stop smiling," tweeted Zinta.

Punjab Kings made a comeback this season with Mayank Agarwal as the new skipper and Shahrukh Khan joining the team. Khan was bought back for Rs 9 crore in the IPL 2022 auction, making him one of the costliest players on debut. His base price was Rs 40 lakh ahead of the auction.
He was a part of Punjab Kings in the last edition as well. During IPL 2021 auctions, the all-rounder was bought for Rs. 5.25 crore.
The team co-owner Preity Zinta, however, did not attend the auction held in Bengaluru this year. The new mother, who welcomed twins Jai and Gita in November 2021, said she would not be able to "leave the little ones and travel to India". The actor stays with her family in Los Angeles.She had, however, reached out to fans and asked for suggestions regarding the players Punjab Kings should go for in the IPL 2022 auction. "The last couple of days have been hectic discussing the auction all all things cricket with our team. I wanted to reach out to our fans and ask them if they have any player suggestions," she had tweeted.
