The ICC Cricket World Cup has taken the world by storm as the top cricket teams of the world battle it out between each other for that one particular reason- The World Cup Trophy!
India is a cricket frenzy nation as we all know and in India, cricket is considered a religion and not just a sport. Team India has performed to the best of its potential to reach the World Cup Semi Finals today. It was an important game for Team India as today’s game was the deciding factor for them to qualify for the semis and also important on a whole because India lost its last match against England. Actors like Suniel Shetty, Rishi Kapoor, Amit Sadh, Sonu Sood, Boman Irani, Huma Qureshi, Taapsee Pannu and many more have been following the World Cup very closely as they constantly post their opinions on the matches on social media.
However in between this very important game, Boman Irani found something very inspiring which actually isn’t related to cricket. In India Vs Bangladesh match today at Birmingham, there was an 87 year old Indian cricket fan named Charulata who had come to see the match, being such an ardent cricket fan. Given the chaos that goes around in a cricket ground, it is very difficult for senior citizens to watch a match in the ground. However this lady didn’t really care about her age and went onto enjoy the match like no other.
Boman Irani posted –
Well, Boman is right for sure.. This kind of an unmatchable spirit and at this age is truly rare and really inspiring. Way to go Boman!
