Cape Town - The T20 Global League is set for another dose of star power when Bollywood megastar and new Stellenbosch Monarchs owner Preity Zinta touches down in South Africa on Wednesday.
The 42-year-old, who is also the owner of IPL franchise Kings XI Punjab, came to Cricket South Africa's (CSA) rescue when she purchased the Paarl-based franchise a week ago.
The franchise had initially been bought by local businessman Mushtaq Brey, but when that deal fell through CSA were forced to manage the team themselves.
But now Zinta is on board, and she took to Twitter on Tuesday to give a message to South Africa while on board her flight.
"I'm really excited to get there," Zinta said.
"I'm looking forward to a great season for the T20 Global League and I'm looking forward to seeing you all at Boland Park."
At this stage it is not known whether or not Zinta will change the name of the franchise.
The tournament gets underway on November 3.
