The updated purple cap in IPL 2021 is listed above with the current stats. Harshal Patel of RCB has taken 17 wickets which is the most and is currently the Purple Cap holder.


The IPL Purple Cap is given to the bowler who takes the most number of wickets in an Indian Premier League season. The award has been a part of the tournament since its inception. Pakistan's Sohail Tanvir was the first bowler to win the Purple Cap. He took 22 wickets in 11 matches.


Dwayne Bravo’s 32 wickets in the 2013 season is the most by a bowler in a single IPL season. Bravo could very well repeat that sort of performance and find himself in the IPL 2021 Purple Cap list. Kasigo Rabada is the latest winner of the award, taking 30 wickets from 17 matches in the 2020 season of IPL. He will also be a contender for taking the top spot in the IPL Purple Cap list 2021 along with the likes of Jasprit Bumrah and Yuzvendra Chahal.
