IPL 2024 Orange Cap and Purple Cap: Updated list of top run-getters and wicket-takers

IPL 2024 orange and purple cap
by Wisden Staff 2 minute read

IPL 2024 started on March 22 – here’s all you need to know about the highest run-scorers and wicket-takers in the tournament so far, including the updated list of players in the race for the orange and purple cap.

The orange cap in the IPL is awarded to the highest run-scorer of the league. It keeps changing hands at the end of every game depending on who occupies the top spot. Similarly, the purple cap is given to the highest wicket-taker of the season.

Over the years, David Warner has won the orange cap the most number of times (three), while Chris Gayle has won it twice. Last year, the orange cap belonged to Gujarat Titans’ Shubman Gill, who amassed 890 runs in IPL 2023, the second-highest aggregate in an IPL season ever after Virat Kohli’s 973 in IPL 2016.

As far as the purple cap is concerned, Dwayne Bravo and Bhuvneshwar Kumar are the only two bowlers to have won it more than once (they have done so twice). Mohammed Shami finished IPL 2023 as the purple cap holder with 28 wickets, while Harshal Patel’s tally of 32 wickets in IPL 2022 is the joint-highest in any IPL season along with Bravo’s in IPL 2013.
