    This Adorable Aunty Praying In The Stands Was The Low-Key Star Of The IPL Final

    And thankfully for her, her prayers worked.

    Unless you were living under a rock on Sunday night, you'd know that Mumbai Indians won a tough match against Rising Pune Supergiants by one run.

    However, at some point with Captain Cool Dhoni at the crease, it looked like Pune were about to go home with the title.

    In the final over, when it really could have been Pune's match and there were only seven runs needed off four balls, the camera panned to this adorable, reassuring sight.

    Everyone wanted to know who she was.

    I mean, look at her. Look at her unshaken faith and total belief that her team will win against all odds.

    Her prayers worked! Mumbai won!

    Never underestimate the power of a praying desi aunty.

    UPDATE: As it turns out, the aunty was actually Nita Ambani's mother — Purnima Dalal.
