Top 5 Bowlers in IPL 2024 Purple Cap Rankings

Jasprit Bumrah: Mumbai Indians' ace in the hole is the shining light for the franchise in what has been a disastrous season for the five-time champions. His ability to bowl in all three stages of the innings along with his wicket-taking skills while keeping the run rate to a minimum make him arguably the best bowler in the tournament.

Harshal Patel: Punjab Kings' leading mid-table wicket-taker has managed to regain his form with the ball after a poor start to the season. His ability to take wickets, especially at the death over, makes him a crucial asset to the Punjab bowling unit.

Varun Chakraborty: The mystery spinner was certainly one of the weak spots in KKR's bowling unit during the initial stages of the tournament, but his perseverance eventually paid off and now finds himself among the top wicket-takers in IPL 2024 .

T Natarajan: Despite the injuries that held him back in previous years, he has now been able to return to his best form with the ball and remains the ace of SRH's bowling unit by being able to bowl in all phases of the innings and also take wickets regularly.

Archdeep Singh: The best part of the left-arm pacer is his ability to bowl with both the new and old ball and also pick up wickets regularly. Despite his runs, his wicket-taking skills will prove vital if PBKS are to qualify for the playoffs.
