The 9 raid points scored yesterday was their lowest of the season. Their previous lowest had been 15. Yesterday’s game, however, was a rare case where both Pawan and Rohit failed to score at least 7 raid points in a match in The two matches where both have scored at least seven raid points, Bengaluru have won both times. When only one of them touches the 7 raid point mark, they have won 4 and lost 5.
