By Iman Zia | 3 Jul, 2019

There is so much beauty within the world of cricket, not just on the field too; there’s a transcending unison and also a sense of belonging – it’s like you’re a part of something truly magnificent. Sweet, tender moments on and off the pitch live on, and a beautiful little interaction in last night’s match between Bangladesh and India has captured the internet.

India beat Bangladesh by 28 runs in a tantalizing match that had everyone on the edge of their seats.



Virat Kohli led his team soaring into the World Cup semi-finals and celebrated their win with a very special fan.

As the players retired from the field, Virat Kohli along with Rohit Sharma went straight to meet 87-year-old Charulata Patel, an Indian cricket fan who had already garnered virality online for her zesty support of the team from the stands.


Virat later tweeted about his meeting with Charulata, saying that “age is just a number” and that “passion takes you leaps & bounds.”


Twitter did it’s thing and poured out admiration and love for the touching meeting.



Former England captain Michael Vaughan even called Charulata’s support for the Indian cricket team as “the picture of the World Cup.”







It’s moments like these that make everything count.
