The Orange Cap is an annual IPL cricket award, given to the leading run scorer in a single season of Indian Premier League. During the tournament, the top batsman gets the honour to wear this cap while on the field and the top-scorer at the end of the season wins an award. 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.
