IPL Orange Cap 2019: David Warner had held on to his position in the Orange Cap standings for few weeks now and there was a big gap between him and the rest. Warner finished the season with 692 runs from 12 matches before joining up with his international teammates for World Cup preparation.
Second in the IPL highest run scorers list is KL Rahul with 593 runs in 14 matches after slamming a fierce 19-ball fifty in KXIP’s final outing of the season against Chennai Super Kings. Quinton de Kock of MI went up to the third position after the IPL 2019 final.
Top-10 sees three Delhi Capitals batsmen who put an end to their campaign following the Qualifier 2 against CSK. Shikhar Dhawan stands in the fourth position (521 runs) with Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer in the seventh and ninth positions.
In what turned out to be Kolkata Knight Riders’ final game of the season, Andre Russell couldn’t add to his tally. A well placed bouncer by Lasith Malinga got rid of the dangerous batsman for a golden duck. This meant he finishes the season with 510 runs from 14 matches and occupies the fifth spot.
