IPL Purple Cap Winners From 2008 to 2023
What is a Purple Cap in the IPL?
The Purple Cap is an honor bestowed upon the cricketer who has taken the most wickets during a season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Bowlers strive to win this prestigious award because it recognizes their dedication to getting wickets and advancing their team’s cause. The name of the cap comes from the fact that it itself is purple in hue.
The bowler who won the Purple Cap has since worn it throughout each IPL season since it was first debuted in 2008. Every game, the top three bowlers with the most wickets are displayed on-screen with their current wicket total, providing viewers a glimpse of who is in the lead for the Purple Cap that particular year. Many bowlers have claimed ownership of this prized cap over the years, but a select few have repeatedly retained it thanks to their consistent play over several seasons.
In addition to improving a bowler’s reputation and job prospects, winning this prestigious award can also result in financial rewards from sponsors or even recognition from cricket governing bodies like the BCCI or ICC. For many professional cricketers, winning this honor would undoubtedly rank as one of their career high points. It is also likely to rank as one of cricket’s most thrilling competitions for many years to come.
