Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan had tasted success in the IPL twice with Kolkata Knight Riders, a team he co-owns. This year, the owners of KKR bought a stake in Trinidad & Tobago Red Steel, and he was delighted with the fact that he had a trophy for each of his kids.
Please somebody post me the picture of the Cup!!! Three babies...I was one short...phew!! Now I have a cup for each one of them!— Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) July 27, 2015
Khan was surely present in spirit.
There's no place i'd rather be than dancing with T&T. True and unbridled happiness. The trophy is beautiful. pic.twitter.com/tCiNeoHeIw— Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) July 27, 2015
For those who find Trinidad & Tobago too long and T&T too short, Jacques Kallis had the perfect solution.
Kamran Akmal was the Man of the Match in the final, and thanked one and all for their support.
@CPL it was a wonderful journey.I won't forget the support&love of ppl,crowd,team mates,management@TTRedSteel it's been an amazing journey.— Kamran Akmal (@KamiAkmal23) July 27, 2015
Kamran may be out of the Pakistan team, but he found support from some of his old team-mates. Shoaib Malik, who played for Barbados Tridents before being called up for national duty, was one of them.

Red Steel came in for praise from T&T Prime Minister Kamla P. Bissessar, who joined in the celebrations at the post-match presentation.
Chris Gayle was also spotted supporting Red Steel.
Darren Sammy followed a post-match script most TV commentators would have gone with.
Daren Ganga, a T&T veteran, was happy to see the home team win.
The New Zealand participants in CPL also sent in their well-wishes.
It was some post-match party, and Bravo led from the front.
Whatever you might think about the CPL in terms of the quality of play, no one will ever beat the CPL in terms of post-final celebrations.— Peter Della Penna (@PeterDellaPenna) July 27, 2015
