Bollywood actor Preity Zinta, who owns the Mohali team in the Indian Premier League, is disappointed at not being able to rope in Harbhajan Singh but is confident that her team will win the inaugural edition of the tournament.
The Bollywood star said they were keen to have the 'turbanator' in the team.
"We missed Harbhajan Singh. We tried hard (to win him) but Bombay wanted him. We wanted to have him in the team," Zinta told a private news channel.
On her team's chances in the tournament she said," Absolutely...Absolutely Mohali is going to win."
Zinta is comfortable with the on-field antics of temperamental speedster S Sreesanth, who has earned a reputation of being over aggressive.
"We love Sreesanth for who he is. He is an important part of the team. I don't mind if he screams, dances on one leg. I have no problem as long as he performs," she said.
Zinta said she was not a die-hard cricket fan but a sports enthusiast.
"I was always a sports enthusiast. I used to watch only one-days and that too finals. India-Pakistan matches I love to watch. I am not only a cricket fan but (I am) a sports enthusiast," she said.
The Bollywood actor also revealed that her team's logo and colour would be introduced in a day or two.
