Coach Randhir Singh Sehrawat Retained for Record 11th Season

The upcoming Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) season 11 brings good news for the Bengaluru Bulls. The team has decided to retain Randhir Singh Sehrawat as their Head Coach for a record-breaking 11th season in a row. This is a significant achievement as he is the only coach retained for 11 consecutive times. 

Randhir Singh Sehrawat's most notable accomplishment came in PKL Season 6. Under his guidance, the Bengaluru Bulls emerged victorious, claiming their first and only PKL title. This wasn't a one-man show - the team thrived under the captaincy of Rohit Kumar, while young raider Pawan Sehrawat emerged as the league's Most Valuable Player (MVP). The final match against the Gujarat Fortunegiants was a nail-biter, but Pawan's stellar performance (scoring 22 points) secured victory for the Bulls with a final score of 38-33.

Randhir Sehrawat's contribution goes beyond just calling the shots during matches. He has a knack for identifying and nurturing talent. Pawan Sehrawat's rise to MVP under his guidance is a prime example. This ability to build a strong team around key players was crucial in the Bulls' championship run.


However, Randhir Sehrawat's journey hasn't been all smooth sailing. The Bulls' performance in PKL Season 10 wasn't as impressive. They finished the season in 8th place, managing only 8 wins out of 22 matches. This significant drop in performance highlights the challenge of consistently replicating success in a competitive league like the PKL.

Why the Continued Faith?

Despite the recent setback, the Bengaluru Bulls' decision to retain Randhir Singh Sehrawat for another season is proof of their belief in him. Here's why this might be the case:

  • The Bulls might recognize Sehrawat's overall positive influence on the team over the past 11 years.
  • His contribution likely extends beyond just the championship win, potentially encompassing aspects like player development, team culture, and strategic planning.
  • The team owners might trust Sehrawat to analyze the shortcomings of the previous season. They might believe in his ability to learn from setbacks, make adjustments, and guide the Bulls back to their winning ways.

Randhir Singh Sehrawat's story with the Bengaluru Bulls is a fascinating one. He has experienced the highs of a championship victory and the lows of a disappointing season. The upcoming PKL season will be a crucial test for him. Can he rebuild the Bulls' form and lead them back to the top? Only time will tell, but one thing is sure - the Bulls have placed their faith in Randhir Sehrawat's guidance for another season, hoping he can rewrite a new chapter of success.
