As predicted by Aakash Chopra, a former cricketer, the purple cap in IPL, in this season is going to be taken by Rashid Khan.

Aakash Chopra is a cricketer-turned-commentator and announced this prediction on his Facebook page.
Rashid Khan is an Afghanistani cricketer, a spinner, and also Aakash Chopra’s favorite player, who might end up being the season’s highest wicket-taker. In the video that he uploaded, making the prediction, he also stated that the two players, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, of the Hyderabad team and Jaspreet Bumrah of the Mumbai team, will give Rashid Khan a tough fight for the purple cap this IPL. Later in the video, he explains the reason for his choice, asserting that, he will be playing nine out of fourteen matches, in a spinner-friendly field, that is five games in Chennai and four in Delhi. This makes it clear that he would probably take two to three wickets per match.
For his, quick decisions and spinning skills, Rashid Khan has given many batsmen a very tough competition. The 22-year old has managed to get 75 wickets in all the 62 IPL matches he has played. Khan has an economy rate of 6.25.
Another prediction made by Aakash Chopra is of the most destructive opening pair in IPL 2021. He foresees Mumbai Indians to be the most destructive opening pair of the 14th IPL edition. In a Youtube comment on his channel, Aakash Chopra responded to the question and declared that he believes Quinton de Kock and Rohit Sharma of Mumbai Indians are the pair that can be the most destructive openers in the new season of the IPL. If Ishan Kishan, opens with Quinton de Kock, even then the probability remains the same. Ishan Kishan bagged the most runs in the previous season.
