India’s 87-year-old fan; Virat Kohli takes her blessings

While India won their match against Bangladesh at the ICC World Cup 2019 on Tuesday (July 2) to reach the semi-finals, a special fan stole the show at the Edgbaston ground in Birmingham.

The Virat Kohli-led Indian team defeated Bangladesh by 28 runs to reach the last-four stage. While the ‘men in blue’ have received massive support in England and Wales throughout the 10-team tournament, a supporter in the stands caught everyone’s attention.

Even Indian players and former cricketers praised the enthusiastic fan, who was 87-year-old young!

India’s ex-captain Sourav Ganguly was full of praise for the 87-year-old Charulata Patel. She was captured on TV blowing a trumpet (vuvuzela) throughout the game.

She became an internet sensation and Twitterati were effusive in her praise for the octogenarian. “India will win the World Cup. I pray to Lord Ganesha that India wins. I bless the team always,” Charulata told ANI news agency.
