Orange Cap Rules in IPL 2023
The Orange Cap is given to the IPL season’s leading run-scorer. The batter who holds the Orange Cap during the season is allowed to wear it on the field during games as long as he remains the tournament’s top scorer.
When two or more batsmen are tied on runs, the batsman with the higher strike rate wins the Orange Cap. In the case that an opposition batsman surpasses the current holder’s count, the prior holder is permitted to wear the Cap until the end of the innings in which another batter surpasses him.

The Purple Cap is an award given to the highest wicket-taker in each season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). It is given to the bowler who has taken the most wickets throughout the competition. The Purple Cap is a prestigious award that recognizes a bowler’s great performance and contribution to their team’s success.
The rules for winning the Purple Cap are rather simple. The Purple Cap is awarded at the end of the IPL season. It is a cumulative award that considers the entire tournament, from the first match to the final. This is how the rules of the purple cap work:
- Most Wickets: The Purple Cap is given to the bowler who has taken the most wickets throughout the IPL season. It is determined entirely by the number of wickets taken rather than the bowler’s economy rate or average.
- Tie-Breaker: If two or more bowlers are tied, the Purple Cap is awarded to the bowler with the higher economy rate. If the economy rate remains constant, the bowler with the higher average will receive the Purple Cap. If the economy rate and average are both equal, the bowler with the most overs will be given precedence.
- Player Transfers: If a bowler is transferred to another team during the tournament, his wickets for both teams will be counted towards the Purple Cap. This ensures that a bowler’s season-long performance is recognized, regardless of team transfer.
Since its beginning in the IPL, the Purple Cap has been a prized possession. It is a measure of bowlers’ excellence, showcasing their impact and efficacy in the competition.
