Batting first, India banked on a century from Rohit Sharma and a fifty from KL Rahul to post 314 runs on the board. The openers added 180 runs for the first wicket before Bangladesh led by Mustafizur Rahman staged an outstanding comeback with a five-wicket haul. The Tigers staged a brilliant chase with Shakib Al Hasan leading the troops before Mohammad Saifuddin took over the reins. But an outstanding spell from Jasprit Bumrah sealed India’s berth in the top-four.
As the players left the field, Virat Kohli and man-of-the-match Rohit Sharma headed straight to Charulata Patel who had earlier gone viral on the internet for her enthusiastic support of the India team in the stands. Virat Kohli thanked Charulata Patel and all the fans for turning out in huge numbers to support India. He also described him as one of the passionate and dedicated fans he has ever seen. The Men In Blues will surely want her on the stands in the upcoming matches as well.
The video has gone viral soon after it came on the internet and has touched millions of heart. Former Australian speedster Brett Lee took to Twitter to express his emotions after watching the video, which has earned praise from all square of the globe.
