Chennai Super Kings ended Kings XI Punjab's IPL hopes with a five-wicket win but KXIP co-owner Preity Zinta found a different reason to be "happy".
KXIP needed to restrict Chennai to 100 for a place in the Indian Premier League playoffs after they were bowled out for 153 with two balls left. But Suresh Raina's unbeaten 61 off 48 balls led Chennai to 159-5 with five balls to spare.
However, Preity was caught on camera apparently expressing her happiness at Mumbai Indians' failure to progress to the playoffs.
The video, which went viral on social media, shows the Bollywood actress apparently saying, "I am just very happy that Mumbai Indians is knocked out. Really happy" to a fellow KXIP supporter in the dug out.
