Yuzvendra Chahal won the Purple Cup during the IPL 2022 final between Rajasthan Royals and Gujarat Titans on Sunday. The Purple Cap is awarded to the tournament's leading run-scorer.

The Rajasthan Royals spinner dismissed Hardik Pandya for his 27th wicket of the season, and went past RCB's Wanindu Hasaranga who had 26 wickets. Chahal ended his season with a bowling average of 19.51 and an economy of 7.75.

Chahal's tally is also the most by a spinner in an IPL season as he surpassed Imran Tahir (2019) and Hasaranga's tally of 26 wickets.
