Just like the batsmen get their due in the form of Orange Cap, the bowlers also are rewarded with Purple Cap for finishing as the leading wicket-taker of the tournament. Although IPL 2017 began on note of injuries, there were some players who helped their teams flourish. Surprisingly, the spinners have come out in flying colours in this edition. One of the notable names in the list is Afghanistan’s Rashid Khan, for whom it is nothing less than a dream come true. Being bid for INR 4 crores, Rashid is fifth on the list with 10 wickets. But last year’s Purple Cap holder, Buvneshwar Kumar finds himself at the top once again with 16 wickets including a 5-foer. IPL 2017 Orange Cap holder: List of Leading Batsmen in IPL 10 — Chris Lynn on top

Chris Morris continues to fight for the Purple Cap as he sits at No. 2 position with 12 scalps. Mitchell McClenaghan also has the same number of wickets but falls to the third sot owing to a high economy rate. Yuzvendra Chahal also finds a mention in the top 4 followed by Rashid.
