Editor's Pick (KPL): Hubli Tigers - Belagavi Panthers

Karnataka Premier League 2017

IPL. TNPL. Now we have the Karnataka Premier League on our app. This T20 league established by the Karnataka State Cricket Association hopped onto the bandwagon way back in 2009. Based on the same model as the IPL, the KPL have had five seasons so far. The sixth season begins on September 1st in Bangalore. There are seven teams who will be competing for the trophy - Belagavi Panthers, Bijapur Bulls, Mysuru Warriors, Bellary Tuskers, Namma Shivamogga, Hubli Tigers and Bengaluru Blasters.
The thing about these players is that they are all new to us. While with TNPL, there were a few players we were familiar with, KPL seems to be different here. Let’s get to know them well during this tournament. I shall do my best to give you as much details about them in the upcoming blogs.

There has been a rain of matches recently. Will KPL add to the fun? Time will tell. Let’s get cracking on the first match of the sixth season of KPL 2017 - Hubli Tigers versus Belagavi Panthers.
