This year, most of the cricketing fans around the globe are excited for the ICCI Cricket World Cup 2019. Despite that Indian Premier League has a special place in their hearts and are eagerly waiting for the upcoming IPL season.
The 2019 IPL season will be the 12th edition of this spectacular tournament and every year we have a few selected favorites to lift the IPL trophy. But apart from the IPL trophy, several fans wonder as to who will win the Orange Cap and Purple Cap.
The Orange Cap is awarded to the player who finishes the season with most runs under his belt while the Purple Cap is awarded to the player who holds the most number of wickets at the end of the season.
Here is a brief overview of the players who might clinch the Purple Cap. Based on their last season's stats and current form, here are the three players who might win the Purple Cap this year.
#3 Trent Boult
The Kiwis have always been blessed with some of the best players there are in the world of cricket. They have always had fast bowlers in their line-up.
In recent years, Trent Boult has been a consistent player for a young New Zealand side and has impressed fans around the globe with his tremendous speed and the ability to take wickets quickly.
Last year, Boult played for the Delhi Daredevils (now Delhi Capitals) and didn't fail to impress the Delhi fans. Boult was retained by the Capitals for the 2019 season. He finished with 18 wickets last season and will be a top candidate to clinch the Purple Cap this year.
