Bevan had an impeccable ODI record in 232 matches and had average nearing 54. He was considered among all time best ODI finishers during his prime.

Bevan is reported to be looking forward to his role as the new coach of Kings XI Punjab. He is impressed with this format of cricket and is excited about joining the IPL. He is focused on his first task of having right set of players in the auction of players which will be held in some weeks from now in Bangalore.

Even the management seems to be ecstatic about his role as the new coach. The management hopes to make most of his vast experience and skills in the game of cricket.
