Purple Cap holder of IPL 2019: Updated After RCB vs MI match 7

Purple Cap holder of IPL 2019: Updated after RCB vs MI Match 7

Yuzvendra Chahal, the leg-spinner of Royal Challengers Bangalore, has reached on top of the leading wicket-takers’ list. For his 5 wickets from 2 matches, he is the current holder of the Purple Cap.

Chahal overtook Chennai Super Kings‘ Imran Tahir who has 4 wickets to his name. The RCB leg-spinner bowled a terrific spell in the 7th game of IPL 2019 against Mumbai Indians. He took 4 wickets in the game. Even though the leggie conceded 38 runs from his 4 overs yet he bagged the crucial wickets of Quinton de Kock, Suryakumar Yadav, Yuvraj Singh and Kieron Pollard.

Another bowler to rise in the game was Jasprit Bumrah. The pacer now has a tally of 4 wickets and is placed at No.3. He put in a Man of the Match performance against RCB at Chinnaswamy. Bumrah bagged figures of 20/3 from 4 overs.

In a run chase that went at 9 runs an over, Bumrah bowled with an economy rate of just 5. Despite being hit for 3 fours by Virat Kohli in his first over, he came back to dismiss the RCB skipper. When the crunch moments arrived, Bumrah kept his nerves and gave away just 6 runs from his last 2 overs that proved to be pivotal in MI’s first win of the season.
