The Indian Premier League 2023 has finally ended, and the Chennai Super Kings emerged as the winners of the 16th season of the IPL 2023. The IPL 2023 final was played between CSK and GT at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
This season has been a topsy-turvy ride for batsmen as well as for bowlers. Some players who received the highest bid in IPL 2023, such as Sam Curran, were not able to perform well during the season. While some of the young players like Yashasvi Jaiswal and Shubhman Gill performed exceptionally well during the season.
This has been the history of the IPL since its inception in 2008: the players who score the most runs during the season get awarded the Orange Cup. Also, the bowler who takes the most wickets gets the purple cap and some cash prize.
IPL 2023 Highest Wickets Taker
This season, Mohammed Shami of the Gujarat Titans topped the highest wicket-taker list. Shami has played 17 matches this season and has been able to take 28 wickets. Also, the Gujarat Titans became the first team to qualify for the playoffs as they were leading the IPL 2023 points table. Whereas, Mohit Sharma of the Chennai Super Kings gave a tough fight to Shami and scored 27 wickets in 14 matches.
