Gerard Butler buys shares in cricket team

Gerard Butler can add sports entrepreneur to his resume after buying a stake in a West Indies cricket team.

The Scottish actor has invested in the Jamaica Tallawahs, who play in the Limacol Caribbean Premier League contest, after he was introduced to the event by his pal Ajmal Khan, founder of the Limacol CPL.


Butler plans to travel to Trinidad on Friday (23Aug13) to support his new team when they play rivals Barbados Tridents.


He tells Britain's Daily Record, "I've had the opportunity to watch some of the matches. It is obvious that this tournament is the home of the greatest party in sport so I wanted to get in on the fun. As a Scotsman, I definitely have an appreciation of cricket."
