The Indian Premier League (IPL) awards the highest run-getter with The Orange Cap. Given as a token of admiration for the best batsman, the Orange Cap is given to the top performer with the bat. Who will be the Orange Cap holder in IPL 2013?

Here are the possible contenders:

Chris Gayle:

He has the ability to hit sixes at will. Gayle has combined that facet of his game with the willingness to bat for the longer period of time. In the first match against Mumbai Indians after a sedate start Gayle smashed Mumbai to all corners of the Chinnaswamy Stadium. Expect more fireworks from the southpaw. Will he be the Orange Cap holder this season?

Ajinkya Rahane:

Rahane is a vital cog in Rajasthan Royals’ scheme of things. He has the technique, talent and class to score runs on a consistent basis. Last season he was holder of the Orange Cap for the early part of the season but lost out to Gayle. Rahane will be man to watch out for.

Gautam Gambhir:

He was sacked from the Indian Test team in the home series against Australia. Gambhir, will be looking to score runs in IPL and get his confidence back. Gambhir has the ability to win matches for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) as he has a solid temperament. He is a very good player of spin bowling which makes him a possible contender to grab the Orange Cap.

Jacques Kallis:

Kallis is a class batsman and has the natural inclination to get big runs in all formats of the game. KKR are lucky to have Kallis in the middle order. He lends stability to their batting line up.

Virender Sehwag:

Last season Sehwag notched up five fifties on the trot and exhibited his controlled aggression. This season things have been tough for the Nawab of Najafgarh. He was dropped from the One Day International team against England and last two Test matches against Australia. Never discount his ability. He will be hoping to score plenty of runs in this competition and serve a reminder to the selectors that he is not past his sell-by date.

Mahela Jayawardene:

In the season opener he scored a classy fifty on a slow Eden Gardens wicket. Jayawardene, Delhi’s commander-in-chief, would be looking to set an example to his team by playing big and impactful knocks.

David Warner:

Warner raised his stakes in the cricketing world after scoring an impressive 89 on his International T20 debut against South Africa. He has never looked back since then. Warner batting at the top means the bowling team is always going to be on their toes. The margin for error is very little when Warner is in full flow.
