He played a crucial role for the Nizams by playing several roles like number 9, false 9 and at times dropping back and playing through balls to the onrushing midfielders and wingers. The Hyderabad captain didn’t just score goals but also played a crucial role in building up the play and winning the ball back, he gave 526 passes this season averaging almost 30 passes a game with passing accuracy above 50%. The striker also has 16 interceptions, 18 clearances and has also made 41 tackles this season.
