Delhi Capitals pace duo Khaleel Ahmed and Mukesh Kumar made gains in the Purple Cap race with a wicket each against Lucknow Super Giants on Tuesday. Both have picked 17 wickets each in the campaign, but Khaleel is placed one spot higher at the fourth spot with a better economy rate. Meanwhile, Jasprit Bumrah continues to lead the race with 20 scalps under his kitty, followed by Harshal Patel in the second spot with the same tally.

In a forgettable campaign for Mumbai Indians, Bumrah remained the saving grace for them as he ran riot with both new and old to claim wickets at every stage. Bumrah has the best economy this season - 6.48 as the opposition batters are still finding it tough to get the better of him.

Harshal Patel, who won the Purple Cap in 2021, is once again in the reckoning to grab the coveted price again. He has also claimed 20 wickets but has an inferior economy rate to Bumrah.

Kolkata Knight Riders spinner Varun Chakaravarthy has also spun his web around the batters this season and has claimed 18 wickets in 12 matches. He has a bright chance to claim Purple Cap, as his team is guaranteed to play three more matches this season.
