Purple Cap in IPL 2024: IPL Purple Cap Winners List from 2008 to 2024

There is a famous saying in cricket “batters win you matches, but bowlers win you tournaments.” Great bowlers always played a significant part in a tournament win for their teams. This is why the IPL has the concept of giving a purple cap to the highest wicket-taker of the tournament to recognize and reward the hard work of bowlers. Since its introduction, the Purple Cap has always been a prestigious award won by many greats of the game. In IPL 2023 Purple Cap was won by Mohammad Shami, playing for the Gujarat Titans. Currently, Harshal Patel is leading the IPL Purple Cap 2024 race.
