Additional information

HAND OF GOD
Scored winning basket at 2017 Asia Cup (division B) final. "I’m speechless. People say that on that last play, god’s hand was on my head. Doing this in front of my home fans was amazing. I was going to cry but had to stop myself as I didn’t want to cry in front of the home crowd." (thehindu.com, 29 Jul 2017)


NETBALL SWITCH
Played netball at Delhi 2010 Commonwealth Games but returned to basketball 10 days after the Games concluded. "It was strange for me to switch to netball at first, and the first two weeks it took some time to adjust, but after that I got a grip of it. When we finally got to Delhi, it was great. We had a cheering Indian crowd behind us to make a good atmosphere. (But) I will always pick basketball. I don’t think netball will have a future for me." (hoopistani.blogspot.com.au, 12 Feb 2011)
