Trinbago Knight Riders did the impossible by beating St. Nevis and Patriots by three wickets, in what looked very unlikely after the Knights lost early wickets and found themselves in a spot of bother. It was Kevin Cooper’s 14 balls 29 that saw the Shah Rukh Khan owned franchise to their second Caribbean Premier League title. The Patriots had set a total of 136 for the Knights, but because of some good bowling and brilliance on the field, the Patriots made a serious match out of it. Cooper has rightly adjudicated the man of the match for his brilliance in the closing stages of the match.
After the win, social blogging site Twitter seems to be all praise Shah Rukh Khan, who is being congratulated, but for what, it was the players who played, Shah Rukh Khan did not even put out a congratulatory tweet after the match, then why is Twitter going gaga over SRK. Shah Rukh Khan is a global star and a demi god in India he has a fan following, which is estimated to me more than that of Brad Pitt, that is how big he is being from Bollywood.
Here is how Twitter showed love for Shah Rukh Khan after Trinbago Knight Riders beat the Patriots:

Fans back in India, especially Kolkata Knight Riders fans would be hoping for a repeat in the Indian Premier League 2018.
