Purple Cap And Orange In IPL
Orange Cap is an award designed to be worn by the batsman with special respect and pride in being one of the best in the Indian Premier League tournament. IPL player in order to chase the Orange Cap in IPL must try to make the most runs in the league. This applies to both the regular season and the playoff series. The reward is temporarily played during the season. With regard to this statement, it is worth noting that the award is first awarded when each team has played at least one match. The orange cap then changes hands as soon as another batsman becomes the top scorer or is retained by the previous owner.
Orange Cap is presented to the batsman at the end of the innings. This can happen in a flash interview or in a post-match presentation. The resolution of controversial issues is also taken into account. For example, when two or more batsmen have scored the same number of runs during the season, then the Orange cap will be retained or awarded to the batsman with the higher hit rate.
Purple Cap is another good reward that boosts the rating and popularity of the bowler who receives it. In this case, the winner is the player with the most wickets in the league, including the playoffs. By analogy with the Orange Cap, this either changes hands or stays with whoever is the best wicket player of the season after the IPL match. IPL Purple Cap is awarded to the bowler at the end of the innings in an interview or post-match presentation. If tie, the award goes to the bowler who has the lowest savings rate to date.
