Apr 21, 2018, IPL Orange Cap Holder: With onset of summer, comes VIVO Indian Premier League 2018. The tournament is spanned from April 7 to May 27. Virat Kohli has regained the orange cap from ‘Universe Boss’ Chris Gayle. He scored 30 off 26 but were enough to surpass Gayle. It was AB de Villiers who anchored the batting with his unbeaten 90 guiding RCB to their second win in the tournament, he also climbed to the fifth position. However, Gayle is only three runs behind Kohli and will surely take the cap back in the next game.

The Orange cap is awarded to the player who ends with most runs in the tournament. We still have a long way to go, but the competition is heating up with every passing game.
