The Indian Premier League‘s highest award, the Purple Cap is presented to the bowler with the most wickets in the tournament. The Purple Cap is a great achievement for any bowler, as it not only shows your confidence throughout the tournament but also demonstrates that you are a superb bowler within the T20 format due to the level of cricket shown in the association.
It can be used as a ticket for bowlers to get the attention of the right people, and thus advance their careers in cricket. The Purple Cap is awarded at the end the season to those who have excelled in the competition.
Since its inception, it has been a fascinating experience. Last year, the honor was backed by Saudi Aramco. Yuzvendrachahal, the leg spinner of the Rajasthan Royals won the first ever Aramco Purple cap after taking 27 wickets over 17 matches. It was his first award in the IPL.
RCB’s Harshal Patel and former CSK all-rounder Dwayne Bouche share the top spot for most IPL wickets with 32.
Bravo has resigned his title after playing in the last season. He will be joining CSK’s Bowling Team for the next season. Harshal will also play for RCB in the upcoming season.
The battle for the Purple Cap is going to be fierce this year because there are some exciting players in each of the 10 franchises. The number 32 is also worth paying attention to. Could any bowler in the IPL 2023 break the record of Bravo and Harshal?
