Bollywood star and co-owner of Indian Premier League (IPL) team Punjab Kings Preity Zinta just can’t keep her excitement in check after bumping into West Indies and former PBKS batter Chris Gayle in Atlanta, US recently.

Preity posted a few pictures with Gayle in her social media accounts. In the post, Preity and Gayle are found flashing their million-dollar smiles. Entrepreneur Paresh Ghelani is also seen posing with them.

“Weekend surprise. Always fun to bump into @chrisgayle333 and @pareshghelani #Atlanta #Weekend #Desivibe #Ting,” she gave a fitting caption to the post.

While Preity is seen wearing an ethnic suit, the flamboyant batsman looks uber-cool in a black T-shirt and black pants. The attacking left-hander has previously played for Preity’s co-owned Punjab Kings in the Indian cash-rich league. However, Gayle went unsold at the mega auction in February this year and as a result he was out of the tournament for the first time in his career.

In last two IPL seasons, the Caribbean had scored 193 and 288 runs respectively with a best score of 99 for PBKS. Gayle has scored a total of 4,965 runs from 142 IPL matches including six hundreds and 31 fifties at an impressive strike-rate of 148.96.
