The Tigers have had a decent last couple of seasons as they completed sprinters up and semi-finalists in 2016 and 2017 respectively. Hubli Tigers had a good performance and has won their first match against Bijapur Bulls, Tigers win by four wickets and with 7 balls to spare. If we look at the team tiger’s last season performance they played the finals and were at the second position in table. Now, again they have to play against Shivamogga Lions who defeated them in season 6 finale. Hubli Tigers will be in mood to take the revenge of their previous defeat, Captain R Vinay Kumar has dependably been a key figure for them and he has contributed enormously with both bat and ball. They've held Abhishek Sakuja, who was the most elevated wicket-taker for them a year ago and the mix of Vinay Kumar and Sakhuja will be imperative for them. They have picked Abhishek Reddy from the closeout, who scored 154 runs last season.
