New Delhi. In IPL (IPL 2023), not only the batsmen but also the bowlers are witnessing a fierce competition. In the case of Purple Cap, there is a rapid change in almost every match. Rajasthan’s spin master Yuzvendra Chahal had won the Purple Cap by taking 4 wickets against KKR in the last match itself. But Rashid Khan has snatched the cap from him in one stroke. He demolished the top order as soon as he came against Mumbai (MI vs GT) and became the owner of Purple Cap.
Gujarat invited him to bat first on Mumbai’s home ground. Mumbai captain Rohit Sharma and Ishaan Kishan were seen dominating the pacers of Gujarat. Both the batsmen had crossed the 50-run mark in just 4 overs. But Rashid, who came to bowl, made Rohit Sharma walk first. After that Ishaan Kishan and Rahul Wadhera were also shown the way to the pavilion by trapping them. Rashid has left behind Mohammed Shami and Yuzvendra Chahal after taking 3 wickets as soon as he came. He took 4 wickets in his spell of 4 overs this evening.
