They say old is gold, and the recent match played between India and Bangladesh proved this proverb.
Indian opener Rohit Sharma and bowler Jasprit Bumrah were enrapturing everyone with their performances during ICC World Cup 2019 tournament. The crowd was going crazy over Indian batsmen’s performances and meanwhile, the big sturdy cameras captured an old lady on a wheelchair, named Charulata Patel dressed in an Indian Saree, with Indian Flag painted on her face.
Her cheerful gestures touched all Indians’ hearts across the globe. Towards the end of the match, the commentators identified the lady as an 87-year-old woman whose name was Charulata Patel.
She spoke to the spokesperson of ANI and said “I have been watching cricket for the last many decades, from the time I was in Africa. Earlier I used to watch on TV when I was working, but now that I am retired I watch it live,”.
Everybody was stunned when they saw this old woman on screens. From actors to cricketers, all of them have expressed their happiness over this beautiful incident at the Edgbaston Stadium.
The small appearance of this elderly fan made her an internet sensation and became one of the highlights of India VS Bangladesh innings on Tuesday.
