Juhi wants luck for KKR

MUMBAI: Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) co-owner Juhi Chawla today hoped that lady luck would smile on the team in the third edition of the Indian Premier League.

"The team management is working very hard both on and off the field and we are confident of doing well. We just need luck," the Bollywood diva of yesteryears, said.

In town for a promotional event, Juhi regretted not being present during the last IPL matches.

"I could not hold my tears when I saw my team losing even after playing well. With a bit of luck we could have won those matches last season," she said adding that she would be present for all KKR matches at the Eden Gardens. With Sourav Ganguly back as the skipper Juhi hoped the local favourite would add zing to the side.

"We are proud of Dada. He has the captain's luck and he is a fighting cricketer and hope he brings that dash to the team," Juhi said.

KKR boys will now be seen sporting new purple jerseys. "Going with the luck factor we have changed the black colour of our jerseys to purple and hope that gives us a purple patch," she said. Asked about about the forthcoming meeting with the state Sports Minister Kanti Ganguly on KKR ticket sales, Juhi said, "I hope things will be taken care of on Monday".
