Khan was elated after his CPL franchise Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR) chased down a target of 155 for their 12th successive win and clinched their 4th CPL title on Thursday.
Shah Rukh Khan went wild as soon as Darren Bravo hit the winning boundary and came up with a delightful tweet much to the happiness of his fans and Knight Riders team members. ‘Come to IPL,” read a part of his tweet.
“Ami TKR we rule. Awesome display boys…u make us proud, happy and make our party even without a crowd. Love u team. @TKRiders @54simmo and my fav @DMBravo46 well done @KieronPollard55 & my man @DJBravo47 love you how many now4!!! @Bazmccullum come to IPL lov u,” SRK’s tweet read.
Lendl Simmons (84*) and Darren Bravo (58*) stitched an unbeaten 138-run stand to help Trinbago Knight Riders chase down 155 for 8 wickets with 1.5 overs to spare. TKR have made history with their win in the final — they have completed the season without having lost a single match. This victory was TKR’s 12th on the trot with the team finishing on top of the league stage with 10 wins from as many games.
Shah Rukh Khan now wants KKR to emulate TKR in IPL 2020.
SRK has also given a new slogan for his IPL team this season. He took to his social media account to share a tweet and urged fans to cheer for KKR. King Khan unveiled the new campaign #TuFanNahiToofanHai for the season.
