Orange Cap Holder IPL2021:
he Orange Cap is the award for the top run-getter in the Indian Premier League (IPL), an award that is juggled around from one batsman to another as the group stage of the IPL progresses along. It finally is awarded to the batsman with most runs at the end of the tournament. Australian batsman Shaun Marsh won the award in the inaugural edition of the league, and was followed by compatriot Matthew Hayden in 2009 edition. Indian batting icon Sachin Tendulkar won the award in 2010, a season in which he led the Mumbai Indians from the front while stamping his class on the shortest format. India skipper Virat Kohli had bagged the award after an incredible run with the bat in 2016. David Warner (2015, 2017 and 2019) has donned the Orange cap most times in the IPL, followed by Chris Gayle (2011 and 2012). Kane Williamson had won the prestigious award in the 2018 season, enjoying a consistent run with the bat while handling captaincy duties for the Sunrisers. After Warner in 2019, KL Rahul of Punjab (now Punjab Kings) won it for the first time in 2020, scoring 670 runs from 14 matches. Who walks away with the IPL 2021 orange cap is a matter of conjecture. With world class batsmen in action along with some exciting youngsters and talented first-timers, the competition for the Orange Cap may well go down the wire in IPL 2021.
