The IPL 2024 is less than three weeks away from going all guns blazing, with the tournament opener slated to be played on March 22. Meanwhile, the veteran leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal has come up with his predictions for the next season.

The premier spinner who plays for Rajasthan Royals in the IPL predicted the Orange Cap and the Purple Cap winners. In a recent video on his YouTube channel named JokerKiHaveli, Esports streamer Gulrez Khan asked Chahal to predict the highest run-scorer for IPL 2024.

For the record, Shubman Gill finished the IPL 2023 season as the leading run-getter. He piled up 890 runs in 17 games and deservedly won the Orange Cap. However, Yuzvendra Chahal ignored Shubman Gill and picked two of his RR teammates to win the Orange Cap.

According to him, either Yashasvi Jaiswal or Jos Buttler would make waves with the bat and win the Orange Cap this time around. Notably, Jos Buttler won the Orange Cap for finishing the IPL 2022 season as the leading run-getter with 863 runs.

On the other hand, Yashasvi Jaiswal etched his name into the record books for scoring the most runs (624 runs in 14 games) as an uncapped batsman in an IPL season wherein he achieved the feat in the IPL 2023 season.

Yuzvendra Chahal predicts the Purple Cap winner for IPL 2024

Quite interestingly, the leggie picked himself as the favourites to win the Purple Cap for the upcoming season. The experienced campaigner accounted for 21 dismissals in 14 games for Rajasthan Royals in the last season.

He is pretty much confident that he will make an impact with the ball and go on to win the Purple Cap this time around. Furthermore, he also added that Rashid Khan would finish the IPL 2024 season as the second leading wicket-taker.
