Complete list of Orange Cap Winners (2021 – 2008) with Statistics

The most important aspect of the game known as cricket is scoring runs. It’s as basic as that: runs win games. The Indian Premier League, or IPL, awards maximum run scores in each season in the shape of an orange cap. Orange cap winners in the IPL stand out from the crowd. The highest-scoring player wears it during the IPL season. This distinctive orange cap in IPL is awarded at the end of the tournament to the player who has scored the most runs during the season. If two batsmen score the same amount of runs, the man with the greater strike rate is awarded the orange cap. We all know that cricket is a team sport in which every player participates, but recognising individual talent is vital. From 2008 until 2021, here’s a comprehensive list of IPL champions wearing the orange hat
