Chennai Super Kings’new batting sensation Ambati Rayudu strengthened his hold over the Orange Cap from RCB Skipper Virat Kohli by scoring 41 runs against Delhi Daredevils in Pune. Indian top batsman Virat Kohli, who scored 32 runs against defending champion Mumbai Indians, rests second on the most run-scoring list with 349 runs from an equal number of innings but Rayudu has been in a great form this season, and it has reflected in the Orange Cap standings. SRH skipper Kane Williamson, who is always in rich form this, has translated his runs into wins for his side and leading Sunrisers in a great manner. He has scored 322 runs from eight matches so far to stand third on this list. Veteran and all-time favourite CSK captain MS Dhoni entered the top-five with a powerful 51 run knock against DD in Match 30. CSK captain raises his run-scoring tally to 286 runs.

Last year, SRH’s David Warner had won the Orange Cap for being the highest run-getter in the tournament, with a total of 641 runs from 14 innings at an average of 58.27.
