The Orange Cap is presented to the leading run scorer during the course of the Indian Premier League season. In case of a tie, the batsman with a better strike rate is awarded the Orange Cap. The batsman with most runs would wear the Orange Cap while fielding till the end of the innings even if an opposition batsman has overtaken his runs. The overall leading run-scorer at the conclusion of the tournament wins the actual Orange Cap award. Brendon McCullum became the first player to wear the Orange Cap, and Shaun Marsh became the first winner of the award. Kings XI Punjab's batsman KL Rahul had won the award last year after playing 14 matches, making 670 runs and a 132 high. His strike rate was 129.34, dotted with 58 fours and 23 sixes.
