CSK's Mustafizur Rahman went wicketless as Jasprit Bumrah retained the top spot in the Purple Cap standings of the IPL 2024.

Mustafizur Rahman and Harshal Patel failed to open their respective accounts as Jasprit Bumrah extended his stay at the top of the Purple Cap standings on Wednesday. Ruturaj Gaikwad played a captain's knock of 62 off 48 balls after Punjab Kings won the toss and opted to bowl first on matchday 49 of the Indian Premier League season 2024 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium. The quick-fire knock of Gaikwad, followed by an MS Dhoni cameo, lifted CSK to 162-7 in 20 overs.
