King Kohli Reclaims the Throne:

Virat Kohli, the run-machine himself, is back at the number one spot despite Royal Challengers Bangalore’s recent loss. Even though his knock against Lucknow Super Giants wasn’t a big one (22 runs off 16 balls), it was enough to push him past Riyan Parag, who briefly held the Orange Cap after his unbeaten half-century against Mumbai Indians. Kohli now boasts an impressive 203 runs in just 4 matches.

Parag and the Chasing Pack:

Riyan Parag isn’t too far behind Kohli, sitting comfortably in second place with 181 runs. Heinrich Klaasen of Sunrisers Hyderabad remains in third, but the big movers are Nicholas Pooran and Quinton de Kock of Lucknow Super Giants. Pooran’s unbeaten 40 and de Kock’s cracking half-century have propelled them into the top five, pushing veterans Shikhar Dhawan and David Warner down to sixth and seventh, respectively.

A Look Back at Orange Cap History:

The Orange Cap has seen some legendary performances over the years. David Warner holds the record for most Orange Caps with three, but Virat Kohli’s 2016 season stands out. That year, Kohli amassed a staggering 973 runs, including a record-breaking four centuries, to claim the Orange Cap and etch his name in IPL history.
