Team India has lost one of its oldest superfans – Charulata Patel, the wheelchair bound elderly woman who caught the attention of the cricketing fraternity during the 2019 World Cup. The Board of Cricket Control in India took to Twitter today condoling the demise of the 87-year-old superfan. Charulata Patel stole the limelight during India's match against Bangladesh at the World Cup in Edgbaston last year when she was seen cheering for Virat Kohli's team with a horn and the tri-colour painted on her face. She immediately caught the attention of the internet as fans, commentators and the whole cricketing fraternity praised her energy and her pictures went viral on social media. Captain Virat Kohli and his deputy Rohit Sharma even met her after the game and took her blessings. Let’s find out more about this famous cricket daadi in today’s episode of Not For Women Only with Sunita Iyer.
