Purple Cap Holder of IPL 2023: Updated After LSG vs DC Match 3

The double-header today has finally made the Purple Cap list full-fledged. Yesterday, only 7 bowlers had taken wickets. Now, the list has extended way beyond the top 10 players. With new names joining in, the Purple Cap list has seen a lot of changes today. 

Mark Wood takes 5-for

We have a new number one as Lucknow’s Mark Wood has taken the first fifer of the season. Mark picked up career-best IPL figures of 5 for 14 to dismantle Delhi’s batting order and played a crucial role in LSG’s convincing victory over Delhi Capitals. 

Meanwhile, Punjab’s Arshdeep Singh has taken the second spot on the list with his 3 wickets today. Arshdeep took the wickets of Mandeep Singh, Anukul Roy, and impact player Venkatesh Iyer to put KKR on backfoot. Since Arshdeep and Wood have taken the first two spots, Rajvardhan Hangargekar has dropped down 2 spots and now ranks at number 3. 

New names enter the top 10

As the second game of the day ended, several new names have entered the top 10 ranks while several others slipped out. Avesh Khan took figures of 2 for 29 in his outing against his former team, the Delhi Capitals, and is now fifth on the list. 

Players from rank 4 to rank 10 all have two wickets to their name. These, in order of their ranks, are Rashid Khan (4), Avesh Khan (5), Mohammed Shami (6), Khaleel Ahmed (7), Ravi Bishnoi (8), Alzarri Joseph (9) and Chetan Sakariya (10).
