Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) co-owner Preity Zinta asked her fans for a small chat session on Twitter. Zinta's team KXIP is already knocked out of the tournament after they failed to win the game against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on Sunday by a margin of 53 runs or more.

During the chat session, a fan asked Preity that what she thinks about the Indian ace batsman Virat Kohli. To this, the actress replied, "He is awesome".

Virat is IPL 2018's sixth most runs scorer with 530 runs in 14 matches. However, he wasn't as consistent as he needed to be and that cost his team Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) a place in playoffs. 

Kohli and co needed to win the game against Rajasthan Royals (RR) to secure a place in top 4 and with a good NRR, they would have qualified. But it was Rajasthan who was better that day thanks to a 4 wicket haul by Shreyas Gopal. 

Zinta also lauded players like AB de Villiers and MS Dhoni in the chat session. She tweeted that it's good to see Dhoni doing well this season. "I like all teams as long as we are not playing against them ???? but I am a big @msdhoni so I’m happy to see him shine," Priety wrote.

The Bollywood diva, like any other cricket fan, calls De Villiers a superhuman. "Is he related to Superman? I saw that catch ???? wow," she tweeted.
