Akash Chopra predicts, he is one of the most popular experts in Star sports feels that SRH’s Rashid Khan is most likely to go on and become the purple cap winner in IPL 2021.
The logic given by Akash is that Sunrisers will be playing their first nine games on relatively spinner friendly decks of Chennai and Delhi. Hence it is like a lottery for Rashid to get a lot of wickets and he may get on an average 2-3 wickets per match feels Akash.
Rashid with his quick delivery action and sharp turn is a match winner for Sunrisers. He took 20 wickets in 2020 season at below 6 economy rate which is outstanding.
Akash Chopra predicts and feels that Bhuvneswar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah will be the other candidates who will challenge Rashid for the purple cap.
