The Purple Cap is an annual award given to the leading wicket-taker in the Indian Premier League. The Orange Cap was introduced a week after the commencement of the first season, but the concept of Purple Cap was announced on 13 May 2008. 


The cap is passed on from one bowler to another based on the leader in the top wicket-takers' list, and finally presented to the winner post the final. 


On its introduction, the then-IPL chairman Lalit Modi remarked, "We have seen over the course of the inaugural season of the League so far that bowlers have just as important a role to play in winning T20 matches as batsmen do.” 


The most recent winner of this coveted accolade is Kings XI Punjab speedster Andrew Tye, who finished the 2018 term with 24 wickets from 14 matches. 


Imran Tahir has been awarded the Purple Cap for IPL 2019, To know who will take the most wickets in world cup 2019, follow Sportskeeda.
