The Orange and Purple caps of this IPL season are still occupied by Rajasthan players. Rajasthan opener Jos Buttler is still the highest run scorer this season and this team’s spinner Yuzvendra Chahal is the highest wicket taker this time. Chahal has fallen behind a time or two in Purple Cap’s career, but in Orange Cap’s case, no batter has been able to beat Butler so far this season. Butler’s possession of Orange Cap is intact from the second week of IPL.

Butler has scored 629 runs in 14 games so far this season with a 48.38 batting average and a skyrocketing 146.96 strikeout rate. He is way ahead of other hitters in terms of runs scored. Butler is followed by Lucknow Super Giants captain KL Rahul and starter Quinton de Kock. Both players have scored more than 500 runs.

one Butler 14 629 48.38 146.96
two Raul KL 14 537 48.82 135.26

4 Plessis faff 14 443 34.08 130.67

The race to win the Purple Cap is very interesting. There are five bowlers participating in this race taking over 20 wickets. Chahal and Vanindu are at the forefront. Chahal has 26 wickets, while Wanindu has 24 wickets. Rabada, Umran Malik and Kuldeep Yadav are not far behind either.
