The IPL Orange Cap for brilliant batsmen
The IPL’s end-of-season Orange Cap award goes to the cricketer that has smashed the most runs that campaign.
The Orange Cap began just weeks into the very first IPL season. It saw the current holder wearing the cap while fielding. The first player to ever wear the orange cap was New Zealander Brendan McCullum.
Australian Shaun Marsh was the first winner at the end of the 2008 season after he hit 616 runs in 11 matches for King’s XI Punjab.
Multiple award winners of the IPL Orange Cap include three-time winner David Warner and two-time winner Chris Gayle.
