Purple Cap in IPL 2019: The SportsRush presents for you the list of highest wicket-takers before Indian Premier League 2020 final.
There is no going into a safe house regarding the fact that the T20 format can be the most toughest one for bowlers. Irrespective of the genre or skill, there are days when bowlers can find it hard to contain the opposition batsmen especially at a venue like the Sharjah Cricket Stadium.
As is the nature of the beast, there’s no escaping those aforementioned days. However, on days when the surface assist the bowlers, even they have dominated the shortest format for continuously hitting the big shots isn’t as easy as it sounds then.
Going by the prevalent notion of “bowlers win trophies”, one can’t undermine the hard yards put it by bowlers principally in the long run.

In the ongoing 13th season of the Indian Premier League, bowlers were expected to outdo the batsmen primarily due to slow surfaces available in the UAE. However, that hasn’t been an outright case entirely as pitch curators have done fairly well to prepare batting-friendly surfaces.
As far as the top-five wicket-takers of IPL 2020 are concerned, three outright fast bowlers are followed by two leg-spinners which speak highly about the importance of leg-spinners in this format.
While the top wicket-takers were expected to do well citing their potential and stature, the likes of Anrich Nortje, Varun Chakravarthy and T. Natarajan doing exceedingly well throughout the season make them the “finds” of IPL 2020.
Talking exclusively about the final match, Delhi Capitals’ Kagiso Rabada and Mumbai Indians’ Jasprit Bumrah will share a personal battle among them in the race to win the Purple Cap.
