IPL Purple Cap 2022: Setters and spinners had their say when it came to the overall wicket column in IPL 202 2.
The current 15th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) has witnessed an impressive spectacle, especially from the fledgling franchises of Gujarat Titans (GT) and Lucknow Super Giants (LSG). On the other hand, the combined nine-time IPL champions of Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Mumbai Indians (MI) are set to be knocked out after a lackluster performance so far.
With the season already in its 30th game and the same now being played on used surfaces, the bowlers have proven to be invaluable to their respective franchises.
Also, with the red-earth pitches likely to deteriorate even further as more matches (across the three Mumbai venues) are played there, expect the spinners (in particular) to exert their dominance further. in the rest of the league.
So far, however, pacers and setters have made full use of the conditions on offer and have had a more or less equal impact in the wicket-takers chart.
