Shilpa & Preity face a setback with the termination of their teams from IPL

This Sunday, The IPL governing council (GC) Sunday terminated the contracts of Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab in lieu of the breaches committed by the team owners. Actress Preity Zinta owns Kings XI Punjab and Shilpa Shetty and her London-based husband Raj Kundra own Rajasthan Royals.
The termination of the Rajasthan Royals from IPL came as a big shock for actress and stakeholder Shilpa Shetty and team skipper Shane Warne. Shetty tweeted on the micro-bloggin site, “This is for all those who want my reaction ‘Honestly too shocked to react,just disheartened… cause it’s more than just a team for us! Still havn’t received the termination, will react after. Need to know the basis of this decision.’ In London now (sic).”

Australian spinner Shane Warne expressed his breakdown on the site tweeting, “Just woke up to news that Royals and Kings out of IPL 4, don’t know anything yet, flying back to Australia… it’s a big shock for Royals, will hopefully get to the bottom of it all (sic).”

“The Royals gave young unknown Indian players a chance and I as captain backed them and our coaching staff supported them. We were a team… What now for the youngsters? I hope BCCI (Board of Control for Cricked in India) come to their senses, fingers crossed,” he added.

Warne also wrote to Shilpa, “Hey Shilpa, please keep me posted if you hear anything, such sad news for us and our loyal fans, shattering to all.”
