Trinidad & Tobago Red Steel beat 2014 champions Barbados Tridents by 20 runs to win the 2015 edition of the franchise-based Caribbean Twenty20 League on Sunday at Queen's Park Oval in Trinidad.

"I want to share a good news with you. This year, we invested in the team, Trinidad and Tobago, the (Caribbean Premier) 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 (KKR) here, Trinidad and Tobago is part of the league there," she said at the launch of children's book Sept-Opus in the city recently.

Juhi, along with her husband Jay Mehta and Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, bought the franchise in June this year. They are also the owners of KKR in the franchise-based 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." This was Chawla's team's third year in CPL, but its a maiden title victory for the franchise.

KKR are also winners of the prestigious IPL title twice.

After the win, Shah Rukh had tweeted: "There's no place I'd rather be than dancing with T&T. True and unbridled happiness. The trophy is beautiful."
