IPL 2024 Purple Cap standings

It is the season where Yuzvendra Chahal has become the first bowler to breach the 200 wickets mark in IPL history, and as an ever-consistent bowler, he is in the race for the Purple Cap. But not at the top. Jasprit Bumrah is also a favorite for the Purple Cap. Bumrah has got to the esteemed 20-wicket mark yet he is not at the top. It is Harshal Patel, who is having a dream season again. The medium pacer has so far snared 22 wickets in IPL 2024 at an average of 19. Here's the fresh scene at Purple Cap standings.


While Harshal Patel is topping the charts, PBKS are left with only one game. Hence, Varun Chakaravarthy, who would enter the playoffs with KKR, will fancy his chances to take the lead. Chahal could also come into contention as Rajasthan Royals are also in the playoffs.

Jasprit Bumrah and Yuzvendra Chahal's performance come as an ideal sight for Team India. Both the bowlers are in the Team India squad and could play a vital role for India in the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup.
