India’s 87-year-old Charulata Patel set social media ablaze with her immense energy and vocal support for the Indian team during their clash against Bangladesh at Edgbaston. The ‘super-fan’ has won the hearts of online users following her pictures in the stadium depicting her waving the Indian flag high and encouraging the cricketers on the field.
Following India’s commanding win, skipper Virat Kohli especially sought the blessings of Charulata and interacted with her. Humbled by her constant support to the Men in Blue and visiting stadiums despite her ripe age, Kohli tweeted his admiration for the elderly woman.
He praised her dedication and commitment to uplifting the team’s morale and hoped she would continue to feature in India’s upcoming matches. Charulata claimed that she has long been a supporter of India’s cricket team and was present when Kapil Dev’s side won the 1983 World Cup at Lord’s.
