In the 2018 Paul Hunter Classic, Hirani qualified for the second round, defeating Jamie Clarke 4–3 in the first round, before losing to Craig Steadman in the second round 0–4. Hirani played in the first round of the 2018 UK Championship, but lost 62 to Neil Robertson.

In the summer of 2018, Hirani stated that he intended playing in as many tournaments as possible during his two-year tour card, but that he was seeking a waistcoat sponsor to enable him to do so [2]
