The domestic T20 leagues in India are well underway and after the completion of the TNPL 2019, we now have the Karnataka Premier League to look forward to. The Hubli Tigers and the Shivamogga Lions will be playing their first match of the KPL 2019 at the M.Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru.
The Hubli Tigers finished second in the group stage last time around with four wins from six matches but could not reach the final. The Shivamogga Lions finished dead last without a single win to their name and so the only way forward for them is up.
Hubli Tigers vs Shivamogga Lions KPL 2019 is going to be played at the M.Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru on the 17th of August 2019.
The Hubli Tigers were one of the best sides in last year’s competition and will enter KPL 2019 with a lot of hope. They have retained some of their best performers from the previous season and added a couple of exciting players as well.
A lot of the focus in Hubli is going to be on Mohammad Taha, a hard-hitting batsman who was the second-highest scorer for Hubli Tigers in 2018. He scored 160 runs in five innings with two fifties to his name.
He is going to be leading the batting once again with support from Parikshith Shetty, Shishir Bhavane, and KB Pawan.
Mahesh Patel took 12 wickets in six matches last season, the most for any bowler in the competition. He is once again a part of the squad for Hubli Tigers and will play an important role.
Vinay Kumar was the next best bowler for Hubli with 6 wickets, a tally that would not have pleased the former India paceman. He is also the skipper of the side and will want to contribute in a more meaningful manner in this season.
KB Pawan, Luvnith Sisodia, Mohammad Taha, Shishir Bhavane, KL Shrijith, RV Kumar, Aditya Somanna, Praveen Dubey, Mahesh Patel B M, Mitrakanth-Yadav, Abhilash Shetty.
The Shivamogga Lions have very little to build on after the debacle of the previous season and we think they are going to be struggling this time around as well.
Both their top-scorers from last season have left the team and even though the team has added Pawan Deshpande, he alone is not going to be able to win them matches consistently. Deshpande scored 205 runs in the previous edition of the Karnataka Premier League. That tally was the second-highest in the entire tournament and instrumental in leading the Bengaluru Blasters to the KPL final.
Akshay Ballal, Pradeep Gangadhar, and Sp Manjunath are some of the other batsmen in the squad.
Abhimanyu Mithun is a very good player to have in the squad, provided he is not busy with first-class duties for the state. Prithviraj Shekhawat had a good time in the previous season and is going to be supported by Arjun Hoysala, K Hoysala, and HS Sharath.
Overall, the bowling attack for the Shivamogga Lions looks quite weak.
Nihal Ullal, Arjun Hoysala, MD Nidheesh, Akshay Ballal, Sujith Gowda, Pavan Deshpande, HS Sharath, T Pradeep, Abhimanyu Mithun, Prithviraj Shekawat, Rishab-Singh.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first with all the rain around

Hubli Tigers vs Shivamogga Lions KPL 2019 is going to be played at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru on the 17th of August 2019. There is some rain expected in Bengaluru on match day and we could have a lot of interruptions. Hopefully, we will be able to get a full match in.
The pitch at the Chinnaswamy Stadium has started to return to its former self and is becoming good for batting once again. We should be able to see a high-scoring match if the weather allows.
We think the Hubli Tigers enter this match with the better chance of winning. The first match fo a tournament can be tricky to call but the presence of a more settled squad which was very successful last season gives it the advantage.
Bet on Hubli Tigers to win.
