PBKS pacer Harshal Patel secured the Purple Cap for the 2024 season after KKR outclassed SRH in the IPL final.

With Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) turning the final into a low-scoring affair against misfiring Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in Chennai, there was no stopping Harshal Patel from winning the Purple Cap as the Punjab Kings (PBKS) fast bowler finished the season as the leading wicket-taker on Sunday. The Indian pacer pipped Mumbai Indians (MI) speedster Jasprit Bumrah and KKR spinner Varun Chakaravarthy to win this season's prestigious Purple Cap.

Opting to bat first in the final of the IPL 2024 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Pat Cummins' SRH side suffered a shocking top-order collapse as the 2016 champions were reduced to 71-6 inside the first 12 overs. Veteran pacer Mitchell Starc, who ran riot in Qualifier 1 against SRH, bowled Abhishek Sharma in the first over of the Hyderabad innings. Fast bowler Starc bowled three overs and leaked 14 runs against SRH in the final. The KKR pacer bagged two wickets in the final to take his tally to 15 this season.
