87-year-old super fan Charu Lata Patel of Team India passed away. She reached the stadium to support Indian cricketers in the match against Bangladesh during World Cup 2019. After the match, many of the cricketers of Team India met her in particular, after which her photos and videos became fiercely viral and she became famous overnight.
The BCCI also paid tribute to this 'Old Fan' of Team India with its Twitter handle. He breathed his last on 13 January. Charu Lata's death was reported from her own official Instagram page.
She was a very sweet little lady, it is true 'little things come in small packages' Our grandmother was happy, she was truly extraordinary. She was our world. We want to thank all of you for making her feel special last year, his meeting with Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma was special. It was the best day of her life (she told us this on several occasions). May Lord Shiva rest her soul.
She reached the stadium on a wheelchair to support Team India with the tricolor in her hands. Everyone was surprised to see her craze for cricket at that stage of her age. She strongly supported Team India in that match.
Seeing the 87-year-old elderly woman's passion for cricket, India's big industrialist Anand Mahindra sponsored the tickets of the ahead matches of the World Cup. The special thing was that in 1983, when Kapil Dev-led Indian team and became the world champions, she was present in the historic Lord's Stadium.
