IPL 2022 Top Wicket Taker Predictions

The competition for the Purple Cap in the IPL this season is getting tougher. In the ongoing IPL 22 matches, we have seen the best cricket players battling on the pitch for victory.

Let's take a look at the top 3 contenders for the Top Wicket Taker award for the 2022 IPL season, along with the betting odds provided by Bet365.

IPL 2022 Purple Cap Award - Top Contenders

Name: Umesh Yadav
Odds: 9.90 at Bet365

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) star Umesh Yadav grabbed the Purple Cap title in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 after the match against Punjab Kings (PBKS) at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Friday. The 34-year-old cricketer scalped four wickets and helped KKR to victory with six wickets. This senior Indian bowler has many achievements in the league and surpassed the achievements of other players such as Rohit Sharma, Chris Gayle, and Yusuf Pathan.

Previously, Umesh started his IPL career in 2010 with Delhi Capitals for four seasons. He became the fourth-highest wicket-taker in 2012. In 2014, he no longer played with DC but played for KKR for the next four seasons. Yadav then was bought by Royal Challengers Bangalore and rejoined KKR in 2022.

Name: Jasprit Bumrah
Odds: 21.0 at Bet365

Jasprit Bumrah is arguably the current best fast bowler in the world. He was one of Mumbai’s four retained players after breaking into the Mumbai team back in 2016.

Bumrah has so far taken at least 15 wickets every season since then and his best season was back in 2020. Bumrah claims 20-22 wickets a season on average and is a strong contender to win the title this season.

Name: Avesh Khan
Odds: 13.0 at Bet365

Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) star Avesh Khan is in third place in the top wicket standings. Khan is at his best against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the 2022 Indian Premier League (IPL) Match 12, Monday, at DY Patil Stadium. One of the most expensive players in the 2022 IPL auction delivered a brilliant performance with the ball.

He took four goals to help the LSG team to their second IPL win this season. The right-handed player took 4-fers and conceded only 24 runs in his 4-over quota as LSG beat SRH by 12 runs. The 25-year-old also received the 'Man of the Match' award in IPL 2022.
