Akshay Bhosale, was a 24 year old promising basketball player from Pune. Akshay had played in numerous tournaments across the country, with large success, and had the potential to be one of India’s best players ever. Unfortunately, he died in early 2015 due to a cardiac arrest after collapsing during a jog in the BMCC Ground and is a player that Pune misses greatly.
