gujarat: IPL 2023: Gujarat Titans players set to snap up Purple and Orange caps this year


Ahead of the final of the 2023 edition of the Indian Premier League, the players of the finalists and defending champions Gujarat Titans are leading the record charts for the Orange and Purple caps.

Shubman Gill’s purple patch in this year’s tournament continued into the semi-finals of the cup, and the batsman scored a century against Mumbai Indians on Friday to seal the top spot on the top-scoring chart, overtaking Royal Challengers Bengaluru bat Faf Du Plessis. The Orange cap is awarded to the highest scorer during the season at the end of the competition.

On the other hand, Gujarat Titans bowlers occupy the top three spots on the bowling charts. Mohammed Shami (28 wickets), Rashid Khan (27 wickets) and Mohit Sharma (24 wickets) are competing for the Purple cap. With Gujarat booking their place in the final, any of these bowlers could win the award.

Gill scored 129 runs off just 60 balls to break the 800-run mark, while also marking his third century in this year’s tournament. The Punjab batsman has scored 851 runs so far and could add to that tally in Sunday’s final against Chennai Super Kings.

With none of Chennai’s batsmen or bowlers anywhere near the top spots on the charts, the Titans players are all set to take the individual honors this year.

Players who win the Purple and Orange caps get a cash prize of Rs 15 lakh, each, in addition to the cap.

In 2022, the Orange cap was won by Jos Buttler, who scored 863 runs for Rajasthan Royals, while the Purple cap went to Yuzvendra Chahal, who took 27 wickets, also for Rajasthan.
