Two matches on two courts each played by two teams and viewed by two eyes. That’s definitely a lot to take in for my eyes. The matches held on the third day of the All India Basketball Tournament proved to be a feast to the diverse audience present there. Women power dominated the day and aroused whistles and cheer from all sides of the stadium as they closed the scores with head to head points in both the matches played yesterday.
