LSG’s Mayank Yadav, just 21 years of age, who bowled the fastest delivery of IPL 2024: a scorching thunderbolt of 156.7 kph in the game against the Royal Challengers Bengaluru at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium, is placed in the 6th position.

Every year when the Indian Premier League (IPL) season comes around, a lot of eyes are on the players who take the most number of wickets in the season, thereby getting the Purple Cap.

These players, more often than not go on to represent their national teams in future tournaments like the T20 World Cup. Players also add to their value for the next season if they have a great campaign in the IPL.

In the 2023 season, Gujarat Titans’ Mohammed Shami won the Purple Cap with 28 wickets in 17 matches. He was followed by his teammate Mohit Sharma with 27 scalps in 14 matches. At number 3 came Afghanistan’s Rashid Khan, also of the GT with 27 wickets in 17 matches and he was trailed by Mumbai Indians’ Piyush Chawla who took 22 wickets in 16 games. Rounding off the top 5 list was RR’s Chahal with 21 wickets in 14 matches.
