And while Hasaranga leads the race, it is Yuzvendra Chahal who has the advantage as it was his team that advanced to the final. The Royals leg-spinner only needs a solitary wicket in the season finale to claim the coveted Purple cap, with others in the top 5 knocked out of contention. Chahal and his RCB replacement Hasaranga are tied on wickets, but the latter’s economy rate puts him ahead, meaning Chahal needs a wicket to reclaim his top spot.

Wanindu Hasaranga is second in the purple cap race with 25 wickets

After being released by RCB, Chahal has been doing a sublime job for Rajasthan Royals. He has picked up 26 wickets in his 16 appearances, at an average of 19.50 and an equally impressive economy rate of 7.92 runs per over. The RR spinner had the chance to extend his lead at the top on Friday, but a lacklustre display (0/45) saw Hasaranga pip him in the race.

Hasaranga has proved why RCB spent INR 10.75 crores on him in the auction. The Sri Lankan mystery spinner has picked up 26 wickets and interestingly, he has both a better average (16.53) and a better economy rate (7.54) than Chahal, and finished with figures of 1/26 on Friday.

And while Hasaranga did come out on top on Friday, Chahal has another chance to reclaim his glory when he takes the field in the IPL 2022 final on Sunday. The Royals spinner will be keen to make it count and inflict damage on Gujarat Titans and help his team to win the title and bag the Purple Cap in the process. No team has won the IPL and had both Orange Cap and Purple winners in their side, and the Royals will be aiming to achieve that feat come Sunday.
