David Warner has won the Orange Cap the most number of times (thrice) in IPL history. He scored the most number of runs in IPL 2019 as well– 692 runs at an average of 69.20 and strike-rate of 143.86. He was also the highest run scorer in the 2017 and 2015 editions of the Indian Premier League (IPL). With a tally of 848 runs, he came close to win the orange cap in IPL 2016 as well but Virat Kohli bettered that with a record-breaking tally of 973 runs at an average of 81.08. Chris Gayle has also won the Orange Cap twice for scoring most number of runs in IPL 2011 and 2012.
Apart from Warner, Gayle and Kohli, there are other players too who raised the bar of batting high with every IPL season. So, let’s take a look at the players who won the Orange Cap in each IPL season, starting right from 2008, in the list below.

IPL 2020 is going to be held in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) this time due to high number of COVID-19 cases in India. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has already confirmed that the tournament is going to be played between September 19 and November 10 in UAE.
Some matches of the IPL were held in UAE in 2014 as well. The Emirates Cricket Board had hosted it pretty well back then and hopefully will do a pretty good job this time as well.
