Gaikwad wins Orange Cap, Harshal Patel bags Purple Cap

Gaikwad scored 32 in the final as he pipped his opening partnership Faf du Plessis by two runs

Chennai Super Kings opener Ruturaj Gaikwad won the IPL trophy in his second IPL season and also bagged the Orange Cap, while Royal Challengers Bangalore seamer Harshal Patel won the Purple Cap.

Gaikwad finished with 635 runs from 16 innings at an average of 45.35, which included a hundred and four fifties. The Pune-based batter scored 32 off 27 balls in the final against Kolkata Knight Riders as he pipped opening partner Faf du Plessis by two runs.

Patel ended the tournament with a record-equalling 32 wickets from 15 matches at an economy of 8.14 and an average of 14.34. He is now the highest wicket-taking Indian in an IPL season and was crucial as RCB reached back-to-back playoffs.

"Very pleased to get this honor. It would've been great to finish at the top and win the title, but that's how the game goes. I am very happy that the team supported me in my good times," Patel said after receiving the award.

Punjab Kings' Ravi Bishnoi won the Catch of the Tournament for his stunning effort to remove KKR's Sunil Narine in the group stage.
