New Delhi | Jagran Sports Desk: Mumbai Indians bowler Jasprit Bumrah regained the Purple Cap after his match-winning spell of 4 for 14 against Delhi Capitals in the first qualifier of the Indian Premier League 2020 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Thursday. Bumrah has taken 27 wickets in 14 matches at an average of 13.92 and an economy of 6.71. He is followed in the list by Delhi Capitals' Kagiso Rabada, who has 25 taken wickets in 15 matches.
"I am okay with not getting wickets and winning the tournament," Bumrah said after the match. "I have been given a role so I just want to execute that role. Opening yorker was really important.
