Kings XI Punjab are not having best of times on the pitch so far; with four wins and five losses in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017, but that has not restricted them from having their bit of fun off it.

In a video uploaded by West Indies cricketer Darren Sammy on Instagram, Marcus Stoinis and Eoin Morgan is seen to pull off a brilliant prank by tricking Preity Zinta. They made to believe KXIP co-owner Zinta that Stoinis has a ‘dog jaw’.

Zinta seems to be unsure of the bizarre statement tries not to believe it, stating: “Are you kidding me? Do such things happen to humans?”

However, the trio persisted to try and convince her of the same with Morgan even touching Stoinis’s jaw to affirm that he indeed has one. Sammy, who was recording the entire incident, too, urges Zinta to feel the jaw to realise the difference.

However, the moment Zinta goes close to Stoinis to touch his jaw, the latter barks out loud to leave all three in splits. An embarrassed Zinta is seen trying to hide her face with Sammy claiming he knows of it beforehand.

With an intense competition on the pitch it’s always good to have a bit of fun to try and keep the stress levels in check. Kings XI Punjab are currently fifth in the table and they’ll hope that they pull off victories in each of their remaining five games to stay assured of a place in the play-offs.

They did manage to get back to winning ways in style by bundling out Delhi Daredevils for a paltry 67 but they would be well aware that they will require several such performances to finish in the top-four.
