After Bengaluru Bulls’ dominating performance against Haryana Steelers, coach Randhir Singh has asserted that Pawan Sehrawat has handled the responsibility of being the captain really well. Pawan was the star of the game last evening as he broke Pardeep Narwal’s record by scoring 39 points.
Pawan Sehrawat scored 39 points in 38 raids last evening and now this is the highest individual score in a single game. He surpassed the record of Pardeep Narwal and led the Bulls from the front as they thrash Haryana Steelers in the latter’s home. Coach Randhir Singh was not only happy with Pawan’s raiding show but also praised his captaincy.
“Very happy with his performance but I’m even more glad because when I was giving Pawan the captaincy, he didn’t want it. He said he hasn’t captained before but then again; he hasn’t done a lot of things before. He’s going to play for India in the future and do a lot of things he hasn’t done earlier. So, if he’s not going to learn new things here then where will he learn? And I am proud because along with the raiding, his captaincy was also exceptional. It felt like he had been raiding for years, he analysed the situations perfectly every time and made the right decisions. I’m happier with his captaincy than he is,” Randhir said after the win.
“Our defence can be sensational some days and not so great on others. As long as Pawan keeps scoring, we generally do fine. But the reason I was screaming at them today was because I wanted them to just concede bonus points since Pawan was consistently getting the better of their defenders. If you give away touch points then Pawan’s raid points get nullified and that’s what was happening.”
Bengaluru Bulls became the fifth team to make it to the playoffs with the win against the Steelers last evening and Pawan was more concerned about than that his own individual record. He said that he was happy as his performance helped the team win and qualify for the playoffs.
“I feel my performance worked to the benefit of the team, it helped us qualify for the playoffs. And I would like to credit the team for helping me with the performance because when I do get tackled, they revive me quickly. So, yes, it’s a good thing that my performance helped the team qualify, I am happy,” explained Pawan.
