Charulata Patel, 87-year old lady who became an overnight sensation across the country after watching the Men in Blue play in last year’s World Cup, the superfan of Team India is no more. She passed away on Wednesday. Mrs Charulata Patel had won almost everyone’s heart after she went to the stadium to see Team India’s match against Bangladesh.
Donning a tricolour scarf, and with a bright yellow vuvuzela and a flag in hand, Charulata Patel was spotted celebrating every run. She was so enthusiastic that the cameramen could not help but constantly show her on the screen.
Not only the fans but the likes of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma were also bowled away by her enthusiasm. In fact, after the match against Bangladesh ended, both Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli had walked up to her to seek her blessings.
Both the cricket stars were seen talking to her and Virat Kohli even promised to pay for her match tickets. Soon after the match, Kohli had also taken to Twitter to thank Charulata Patel. Later, Pepsi had roped her as the face of their swag campaign. Pepsi were running the ‘Swag’ ad campaign for the ICC World Cup 2019.
But unfortunately, Charulata Patel will not be seen in any cricket stadium anymore although her legacy will continue inspiring the cricketers and fans.
