Indian women's team player Anmolpreet Kaur to join Osaka University, Japan
Tokyo, 15th March 2019: Indian women’s team power forward/centre, Anmolpreet Kaur, has successfully graduated from the Toa Gakuen High School in Tokyo, Japan.
The 19-year-old will now be joining Osaka University for its four year college programme.
