smruthi radhakrishnan is born on 15 April 1992 in Thaliyil Kerala. Indian Women Smruthi Radhakrishnan added 3 assists, while Shireen Limaye led the team in rebounding pulling down 7 rebounds. India’s young and largely inexperienced side failed to maintain their composure on the big stage and turned the ball over a massive 33 times. Clearly, the team missed starting point guard, Kavita Akula, who was made unavailable for the event due to her college career starting in the U.S. The Indian women’s team came out on Day 4 of the 26th FIBA Asia Women’s Championship 2015 searching for their first win of the tournament. This was a likely possibility today as they geared up to face Thailand, a team ranked three places lower than India according to the FIBA world rankings released after the 2014 FIBA World Cup.

Her forays inside the ‘D’ proved to be costly for the South Western Railway side as they committed a number of fouls earlier on and then looked to avoid reaching the dreaded five personal fouls and the fifth team foul in the quarter.

Another impressive performer for Maharashtra was their captain Manisha Dange. Her ability to shoot from outside the three-point perimeter, helped take her personal tally to 17 points in the game. The home side dominated the game from the first jump-ball itself, leading 17-10 in the first quarter. Both sides increased the tempo in the second quarter with Maharashtra scoring 20 points and South Western Railway 14, thus the lead the former had over the latter increased to 13 points with the half-time score at 37-24.The second-half began with the South Western Railway counterattacking the home team and enjoying some dominance. But the spirited fight back did not last too long as Radhakrishnan re-established the distance between the two sides. At the end of the third period, the scores were 54-42, with South Western Railway cutting Maharashtra’s lead by just one point. There were no twists and turns in the game’s final quarter and the leading side scored 18 more points, conceding only 14 .
