What did Akash Chopra and Jatin Sapru say about this IPL 2023 Orange Cap and Purple Cap contenders?

Rahul has battled with consistency recently, particularly in Test cricket.But he has incredible records in the IPL as well. In IPL 2022, while captaining Lucknow Super Giants, the wicket-keeper batter scored 616 runs from 15 innings, including two hundreds and four half-centuries. Gill also starred for the Gujarat Titans previous season, amassing 483 runs in 15 innings and finishing among the top five run scorers.

Jatin Sapru picked Punjab Kings' Kagiso Rabada and RCB's spinner Wanindu Hasaranga as the IPL 2023 Purple Cap contenders. Rabada was the highest wicket-taker for Punjab last season, taking 23 wickets in 13 innings, including two four-wicket hauls. Last year, Hasaranga made an impression with 26 wickets from 16 innings, falling one wicket shy of Yuzvendra Chahal's record 27-wicket haul.


Will Virat Kohli’s recent form help RCB to win their maiden title?

Chopra also backed Royal Challengers Bangalore's Virat Kohli to forget the troubles of previous season and challenge for the Orange Cap with Rahul-Gill. Sapru, on the other hand, chose Chennai Super Kings opener Ruturaj Gaikwad, who was IPL 2021's best run-getter and headed the scoring chart for CSK in IPL 2023 with 368 runs from 14 innings.

Although doing well in prior seasons, the RCB team has failed to win their maiden IPL title. Considering the depth that the RCB have acquired in their batting order, skipper Faf du Plessis will attempt to improve his team's fortunes.
