Team India's superfan Charulata Patel passes away aged 87, BCCI offers condolences

Charulata Patel’s grandchildren shared the heartbreaking news on Instagram, saying: “It is with a heavy heart that I inform you, our beautiful grandmother took her final breath on 13/01 at 5.30 pm. She was such a sweet little lady, it’s true ‘small things come in small packages’ our Dadi was a delight, she was/is truly extraordinary. She was our world. I want to thank you all for making her feel special last year, she loved the attention. A big thank you to @virat.kohli you made her feel extra special, meeting you and @rohitsharma45 was the best day of her life (she told us this on multiple occasions). May Lord Shiva bless her atman always, please all say a prayer.”

BCCI soon took to twitter to offer condolences. They posted, “#TeamIndia’s Superfan Charulata Patel ji will always remain in our hearts and her passion for the game will keep motivating us. May her soul rest in peace.”

The wheelchair-bound Patel came to limelight when she was seen cheering for India by blowing a vuvuzela during a World Cup game against Bangladesh on July 2 last year in Birmingham. Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma personally thank Patel. They showed their gratitude by seeking her blessings after India’s win.

May Her Soul Rest In Peace.
