IPL 2022 I have seen 2 tremendous matches on an interesting Sunday on April 10. After which the orange and purple cap race of the season has become very fun. Let’s start with the first match of the day, in the 19th match of IPL 2022 at Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai, Delhi Capitals defeated Kolkata Knight Riders by a huge margin of 44 runs. And
In the 20th match of the season which started in the evening, Rajasthan Royals defeated Lucknow Super Giants by 3 runs in a thrilling match at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. In both these matches, the players have included a lot of runs and wickets in their account. Let us know, after these two matches, what has changed in the race of Orange Cap and Purple Cap.
Shimron Hetmyer top-5 in Orange Cap race
First of all, we will talk about the highest run-scorer in IPL 2022 i.e. Orange Cap contenders, so he is still on top of this list. Rajasthan Royals K Jos Buttler persists although he scored just 13 runs in today’s match. But after scoring 218 runs in 4 matches, he still deserves the Orange Cap.
But with this, now Shimron Hetmyer of Jos Buttler’s team has entered the top-5 in this list. Hetmyer, who has been in fine form in IPL 2022, is scoring a lot of runs in the lower order. Even so far he is the only lower order batsman in this list. He played an unbeaten innings of 59 runs against Lucknow in today’s match.
Yuzvendra Chahal deserves the Purple Cap in IPL 2022
With this, now talking about the list of highest wicket-taker bowlers in IPL 2022, it has seen a big change after both the matches of today. For the first time in the current season, the Purple Cap has gone from Umesh Yadav’s head to Yuzvendra Chahal’s head. He broke the back of the opposing team’s batting by taking 4 wickets against Lucknow.
Along with this, his partner in Team India, Kuldeep Yadav has also occupied the third place in the Purple Cap race by taking 4 wickets in today’s match against Kolkata Knight Riders.
