Awww, is all we could think of. What a great way to celebrate a win.
As the players headed out of the stadium, Virat Kohli along with Rohit Sharma entered the stands to meet an excited Charulata Patel, an 87-year-old Indian fan who is already famous for her passion for cricket.
Virat tweeted about the meeting later on and melted hearts:
Virat Kohli thanked all the fans for their immense love and support throughout the tournament, especially Charulata Ji. He introduced her as “probably the most passionate and dedicated fan.” He added that passion takes you leaps and bounds and age is just a number.

Charulata Patel is a diehard Indian fan:
Charulata Patel is an 87-year-old Indian fan. She has been fangirling over the Indian Cricket team since long. As a young girl, she used to write every record in a notebook. She was in the crowd cheering the Indian team bag the 1983 world cup.
