Bollywood actress Preity Zinta co-owned Kings XI Punjab unveiled their new jersey for the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
The new jersey is made out of the same colours as in the previous editions (red and silver), although the prominence of the silver shade has decreased from the front, and is limited to the sides on the back of the jersey. The blue emblem, featuring a roaring lion, sits below the chest of the jersey.
The KXIP side will be captained by Ravichandran Ashwin, who played for the Rising Pune Supergiant in the last two seasons. The Punjab side is being mentored by Virender Sehwag, who was present at the event of unveiling of the jersey along with the newly appointed captain.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to Kings XI Punjab’s new jersey:
