New Delhi: Now just a few days are left for the start of the Indian Premier League 2021 (IPL 2021). All the teams have started training with their players. In this big league, the dominance of the batsmen remains as much as that of the bowlers. In the IPL, the bowler who gets the highest wicket every year becomes the winner of the Purple Cap. In this year’s IPL, it will be interesting to see which player gets the Purple Cap.
There may be a collision in Bumrah-Bhuvi
Two Indian team pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvaneshwar Kumar (Bhuvaneshwar Kumar) may be competing to win the Purple Cap in the IPL this year. Bumrah is counted among the best fast bowlers of this era, but he has not won the IPL Purple Cap even once. Bumrah will try this year to get this cap by taking the most wickets. On the other hand, speaking of Bhubaneswar, he is the only bowler besides Dwayne Bravo who has won the Purple Cap twice in the IPL. Bhubaneswar achieved this feat continuously in the years 2016 and 2017. Bhuvi has recently returned to the team with the England series and he is also in excellent form.
Rabada and Morris are also contenders
Two bowlers from South Africa will be in the Purple Cap race this year. The biggest contender among them is Kagiso Rabada, who plays for the Delhi team. Rabada also won the Purple Cap in 2020. Last season, he took a total of 30 wickets in 17 matches.
On the other hand, he is also a great all-rounder when he sees Chris Morris. Morris can also win the Purple Cap this year. Let me tell you that Morris became the most expensive player in IPL history in this year’s auction. Morris was included in his team by Rajasthan Royals for Rs 16.25 crore.
Zhai Richardson can surprise
Australia’s young fast bowler Jhye Richardson can also surprise everyone this year and win the Purple Cap. Richardson also took the highest wicket in this year’s BBL season. He took 29 wickets in 17 matches. Preity Zinta’s team Punjab Kings have added Richardson to their team by giving a huge amount of Rs 14 crore.
