March 21 (CRICKETNMORE) - Bowlers play a crucial role in a T20 format. With Indian pitches which are mostly batsmen friendly it makes a tough task for the bowlers to not only restrict the runs but also to take wickets in a spell of just 4 overs. Purple cap is given to those bowlers who take most wickets in a single season of IPL. Let’s take a look at IPL Purple cap recipients.
