In a thrilling encounter at the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023, Sunrisers Hyderabad defeated Kolkata Knight Riders by 23 runs at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Even though the game was heavily dominated by the batters, the Purple Cap list has only seen one change throughout.
Markande spins a web
Mayank Markande, who started a little late in the league, has been quick in catching up with his peers. Mayank picked up 4 wickets in SRH’s last game against Punjab Kings and played a huge role in the team’s victory. He carried the same form in today’s game as well as he picked up two important wickets of Narayan Jagadeeshan and Andre Russell to curb all hopes of KKR winning the game. He has now 6 wickets in 2 games and is making his way up very fast in the league. He is currently ranked 8th in the league, only above Ashwin and Jadeja who are 9th and 10th respectively.
Gujarat Titans have dominated the Purple Cap right from the start. The team has three bowlers in the top 10 list. Apart from Rashid Khan, pacers Alzarri Joseph and Mohammed Shami have also been pivotal in Gujarat’s good run so far in the season. Alzarri Joseph and Mohammed Shami both have 7 wickets in 4 games and are currently seated at the 4th spot and 6th spot respectively.
