IPL awards an orange cap every year for the batsman who scores the most number of runs. As much as the teams are motivated to win the trophy, the players’ motivation to win this orange cap is fierce.

We never know but we do the most likely players that are in competition for the orange cap in IPL 2021. Check them out.
KL Rahul was the leading run-scorer in last season IPL 2020 with 670 runs at an average of 55.83.
