Hubli Tigers put up a spirited performance after losing their first two matches and are now one step away from winning their maiden trophy. Mohammed Taha has been their batting stalwart with 253 runs this season at a strike rate of 136. He played vital knocks in both the playoff matches to help his team post a good total. KB Pawan and Praveen Dubey came up some attacking cameos down the order to boost their team`s total against the Belagavi Panthers. Skipper Vinay Kumar has scored 210 runs with 2 fifties batting at the top of the order. The spin trio of Mitrakanth Yadav, Shreyas Gopal, and Praveen Dubey form the core of the bowling setup by taking wickets consistently and controlling the run flow during different phases of the game. Aditya Somanna and Abhilash Reddy put up a much-improved performance contributing to 10 wickets in the last two matches.
Praveen Dubey – Praveen Dubey is the only lower-order batsmen to score 200+ runs this season and his knocks have provided to be the difference between the sides both while setting and chasing a target. He is also a handy bowler who can give you vital overs.
A Reddy – Abhilash Reddy came into playoffs with just one wicket at an economy of over 10 RPO. But he has figures of 3/33 & 3/39 in the playoffs. His ability to take wickets at the top is disrupting the momentum in the chase.

Mysuru pitch is a good batting pitch and teams are scoring runs with ease. We can expect an average score in the ranges of 160-180 runs in this pitch easily. The matches held at Mysuru have not been disturbed by rains so far and we expect a clear and bright sky on the match day.
Teams batting first have won all the three playoff matches played as teams have faltered chasing the total. Both Captains will look to bat first in this important match.
Both teams are neck-to-neck in their batting and bowling departments with Tuskers having a slight advantage in batting and Tigers owing the same in the bowling department. Bellary Tuskers have the psychological advantage of winning their previous finals (KPL2016) and league match against the Panthers. So, we expect, Bellary Tuskers to win their second trophy this season.
