In the list of top bowlers in IPL 2020, there is a stiff fight between MI’s Jasprit Bumrah and DC’s Kagiso Rabada. The Delhi Capitals’ pacer has been leading the bowlers chart for most of the tournament. But after his wicketless performance in Qualifier 1, Rabada conceded the purple cap to Bumrah. However, the Delhi spearhead win the cap after stupendous performance in the qualifier.

 

Now it will be interesting to see who will win the purple cap this season given both the pacers are going to lock horns against each other in IPL 2020 grand finale.
