So well, that's about it from today's first KPL game, do join us for the second game that begins soon - it is the Bijapur Bulls facing the Ballari Tuskers.
See ya there!
There is no change in standings for either side - Hubli stays second with three wins from three games and behind Bengaluru on net run-rate, while Mysuru stays fourth, with one win from two games.
Vinay Kumar, the Hubli Tigers' captain:
We were missing Abhishek Sakuhja who is our main death bowler, so I had to take the responsibility. Happy with way the boys stepped up. Mysuru played really well. We can take a lot of positives, especially how the youngsters performed. But at the same time we can also work on our fielding - had we taken our chances, we could have won more easily."

Jagadeesha Suchith, the Mysuru Warriors captain:
"I think we had a good game. Unfortunately we ended up on the losing side. It is still early days in the tournament. A lot of credit goes to Manager, backed himself and played some amazing shots."
Mohammed Taha, Hubli Tigers (Man of the Match): It was a good game. I like playing such games. I just look to play my shots.
Brief Scores:

Hubli Tigers 182/6 in 20 overs (Taha 68, Sujit 31, Vinay 30*, Vyshak 3/45, Bhareth 2/33) beat Mysuru Warriors 179/9 in 20 overs (Shoaib 58, Arjun 31, Amit 24, Suraj 3/24, Mahesh 2/35) by 3 runs.
It was all free-flow for Warriors when Hoysala, Amit and Raju were there at the crease, as they scored but at 91 in the first ten overs.

But then some quick wickets started hampering with the chase, and the side lost track of what they were meant to do. It was not until Shoaib shone, that things looked hopeful for Mysuru again. With his dismissal, however, the side crumbled down inches short of the finish line.
It was an amazing game. The flow of momentum kept shifting between the two sides, and in the end, every run mattered, as Hubli completes a narrow win. Just imagine - had Mysuru bowled just four wides lesser, the result would have been different. That is how close this match was.
Excellent last over from Kranthi Kumar, he did it for his side under pressure. After giving away 9 in five it was a brilliant decision to use a slower delivery in the very last ball, and it is game over for the Warriors.

Warriors 179/9 after 20 overs.
But no! it's a WICKET! Manjunath lashes out wildly at the ball, fails to connect, and the ball will fly high but short, to short third man, where the fielder accepts it with open hands (literally).

S P Manjunath c Mahesh Patel b Kranthi Kumar 8(9) [4s-1], fall of wicket 179/9 in 20 overs.
