Mumbai, July 29 (IANS)

Actress-entrepreneur Juhi Chawla, one of the owners of the Trinidad and Tobago Red Steel, said that she is extremely happy that her team has won the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) this season.

"I want to share a good news with you. This year, we invested in the team, Trinidad and Tobago and the league was recently going on, where we've emerged victorious the day before yesterday. It's a miracle. So I think that's been a step ahead. So just like Kolkata Knight Riders here, Trinidad and Tobago is part of the league there," she said at the launch of children's book "Sept-Opus".

Juhi, along with her husband Jay Mehta and superstar Shah Rukh Khan, bought the franchise in June this year. This was her team's third year in CPL but its maiden title victory.

They are also the owners of Kolkata Knight Riders, two-time champions in the Indian Premier League.

"The team belongs to all of us (Mehta, Shah Rukh). Right now, it's Trinidad and Tobago, let's see what its name is kept later on since it's a co-branding." 

Juhi will now be seen in the upcoming education drama "Chalk N Duster" which is releasing on the occasion on Teacher's Day.

Shah Rukh Khan had already taken to twitter to celebrate the team’s victory.
