Harshal Patel is at number-1 in the Purple Cap race.
What Harshal Patel did in this IPL 2021, hardly anyone has been able to do in the history of this league so far. The current season of IPL is on its last. In this league that changes the tone of the figures every moment, Patel has set his feet at one place in such a way that it is becoming difficult to remove him. He is number-1 in the Purple Cap race even after 52 matches of the league and no one is able to remove him. After the match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Sunrisers Hyderabad on Wednesday, this player has further strengthened his reign. He took three wickets in this match and now this season his number of wickets has gone up to 29. With this, he has become the highest wicket-taker Indian bowler in an IPL season and is close to breaking the record for the highest wicket-taker in an IPL season. In which Kagiso Rabada (30 wickets) of Delhi Capitals is ahead of him and Dwayne Bravo (32 wickets) of Chennai Super Kings is ahead of him.
Harshal is number one, while Avesh Khan of Delhi Capitals is in second place, but the difference of wickets between him and Harshal is very high. After Wednesday’s match, Rashid Khan of Sunrisers has entered the top-5. He has replaced Arshdeep Singh of Punjab Kings. Mohammad Shami of Punjab is in the top-5.
biggest award for bowlers
Every bowler playing IPL tries to win his team by performing brilliantly. Along with this, he dreams that his head is adorned with a purple cap. Because purple cap is the only award in IPL, which puts a stamp on the ability of any bowler. That’s why every bowler wants to make this cap his name by putting in all his strength. The bowler who takes the most wickets in the whole tournament, gets this cap in the end. Also, its entitlements keep changing in between. Match-by-match Purple Cap adorns the heads of the bowlers who took the most wickets. But at the end of the tournament, he gets it only, who has taken the most wickets in the IPL season. At the end of the first half of the season, RCB’s Harshal Patel was leading the Purple Cap race with 17 wickets in seven matches. He continued his reign in the second half as well.
