After Martin Guptill’s T20 ton, Twitter mocks Preity Zinta for not retaining him in KXIP for IPL 2018
Martin Guptill set social media ablaze on Friday with his second T20I century. The New Zealand opener pummelled the Australian attack at the Eden Park in Auckland.
Although his team went on to lose the match, Guptill earned plaudits for his devastating knock. The right-hander smashed nine sixes and six fours in his 54-ball 105.
While the 31-year-old earner his share of praise on Twitter on Friday, Bollywood actress Preity Zinta ended up at the other end of the stick.
Fans mocked Zinta, who is part owner of Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Kings XI Punjab, for failing to retain Guptill in the recent IPL 2018 Auction. The Kiwi dasher represented KXIP in the IPL last year, but went unsold this time around.
Here are some tweets

Preity Zinta didn’t retain Martin Guptill for IPL 2018 season. Let that sink in. #NZvAUS
