Andrew picked up a total of 24 wickets in 14 matches at a tremendous strike rate of 14.00.

The experienced bowler is a pivotal player for the Delhi Capitals and was retained for this year’s tournament as well. Boult is known for his attacking form and is almost unplayable when at his best.

Hardik Pandya (MI)

Not just a bowler but an all- rounder and a good one at it, Hardik Pandya is a crucial player of the Mumbai Indians. Last season he begged a total of 18 wickets from the 13 matches of Mumbai Indians. He had an impressive strike rate of 14.33. His potential was well exposed last season where he did exceptionally well with both the ball and bat. He managed to score 260 runs for his team.

Sunil Narine (KKR)

Another all- rounder with a magnificent performance last season, Sunil Narine clinched 17 wickets in 16 matches at a strike rate of 21.5. Sunil got the honour to be named as the Most Valuable player of the tournament in IPL 2018 because of his outstanding performance in both the forms of batting and bowling. He holds the joint recrd of scoring the 2 nd fastest half century along with Yusuf Pathan in IPL history.

Based on his date of birth, 1 st April, 1995, Jofra’s sun sign is Aries and his name sign is Capricorn.

While these 8 players have equal opportunities of owning the prestigious Orange Cap for this season, our eminent Astrologer’s at Astroyogi have predicted more in favour of Andrew Tye. Jofra Archer and Shardul Thakur might emerge out to be strong contenders after Tye. While Rashid Khan will have his luck on his side, other bowlers such as Trent Boult, Umesh Yadav, Hardik Pandy and Sunil Narine will have a rather mixed experience but they ure will have the chance to be in the run for owning the Purple cap if they continued to perform their best.
The players in this list have been chosen on the basis of their impeccable performance last year in IPL. Apart from these some of the honourable mentions that might change their gears from last time and give their best are Jaydev Unadkat, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Siddharth Kaul, Ajanta Mendis, Mohit Sharma and Jaspreet Bumrah.
