IPL Orange Cap holder 10 players who have won the ‘Orange Cap

The Indian Premier League’s top run scorer receives the Orange Cap, which is currently known as the Aramco Orange Cap due to sponsorship (IPL).

It was unveiled on April 25, 2008, one week after the IPL’s debut season kicked off.

The Orange Cap was worn by the player who scored the most runs during the course of the season while playing defence, with the Orange Cap trophy being awarded on the day of the season finale to the player who scored the most runs overall during the duration of the tournament.

Shaun Marsh was the first recipient of the Orange Cap, and Brendon McCullum was the first player to wear one.

David Warner has so far earned the cap three times, followed by Chris Gayle, who has done it twice.

In the 2016 Indian Premier League, Virat Kohli amassed the most runs (973) in a single season of the competition.

“Cricket is typically remembered and preserved as numbers and not by material distinctions,” remarked Lalit Modi, the then-IPL chairman and commissioner, of the project.

Through this effort, the DLF Indian Premier League will establish a distinction for the finest batsman, which each player would enjoy and value.

The goal of this project is to be creative, add another unique chapter to the DLF Indian Premier League’s history, and recognise players who have made great contributions to the league.
