Australia opener David Warner secured the Orange Cap for most runs in IPL 2019 by a safe distance, despite having not played a match since April 29 when he left Sunrisers Hyderabad to join his World Cup team-mates for a pre-tournament training camp in Brisbane.

During his comeback to the IPL after serving his sentence for ball-tampering in South Africa last year, Warner amassed 692 runs at an average of 69.2 and strike-rate of 143.86 for SRH before returning home. In his final match of IPL 2019, Warner’s 81 off 56 balls in Sunrisers’ big win over Kings XI Punjab was his ninth 50-plus score of the season.
