IPL 2021 statistical leaderboards after Match 29 (DC vs PBKS)

Orange cap, harshal patel

Glenn Maxwell, Faf du Plessis, and KL Rahul have all donned the Orange Cap in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 at some point, but none for as long as Shikhar Dhawan. With Rahul down with appendicitis, Dhawan now has a 60-run lead over du Plessis, his closest competitor.

Batsman Team R SR 50
Shikhar Dhawan Delhi 380 134 3
KL Rahul Punjab 331 136 4
Faf du Plessis Chennai 320 145 4
Prithvi Shaw Delhi 308 166 3
Sanju Samson Rajasthan 277 146 1

Ambati Rayudu has only one fifty so far, but he has scored at a breakneck pace. Prithvi Shaw, fourth on the run-getters list, is also the third-fastest scorer here.

Batsman Team R SR 50
Ambati Rayudu Chennai 136 200 1
Kieron Pollard Mumbai 168 171 1
Prithvi Shaw Delhi 308 166 3
AB de Villiers Bangalore 207 164 2
Ravindra Jadeja Chennai 131 162 1

Rahul leads the sixes chart, but Rayudu’s six rate – more than one an over – makes spectacular reading.

Batsman Team R SR BF 6 B/6
KL Rahul Punjab 331 136 243 16 15.2
Jonny Bairstow Hyderabad 248 142 175 15 11.7
Ambati Rayudu Chennai 136 200 68 13 5.2
Kieron Pollard Mumbai 168 171 98 13 7.5
Andre Russell Kolkata 163 155 105 13 8.1
Jos Buttler Rajasthan 254 153 166 13 12.8
Faf du Plessis Chennai 320 145 220 13 16.9

Dhawan has hit the most fours in IPL history, and he has extended that lead in this edition. His opening partner Shaw is at second place. The others are far behind.

Batsman Team R SR BF 4 B/4
Shikhar Dhawan Delhi 380 134 283 43 6.6
Prithvi Shaw Delhi 308 166 185 37 5.0
Faf du Plessis Chennai 320 145 220 29 7.6
Jos Buttler Rajasthan 254 153 166 27 6.1
KL Rahul Punjab 331 136 243 27 9.0

The last day of the week saw two entries in the top five. Interestingly, all three hundreds of this edition involve Rajasthan Royals.

Batsman Team R vs Date
Jos Buttler Rajasthan 124 Hyderabad 2 May
Sanju Samson Rajasthan 119 Punjab 12 April
Devdutt Padikkal Bangalore 101* Rajasthan 22 April
Mayank Agarwal Punjab 99* Delhi 2 May

Harshal Patel and Avesh Khan, the two uncapped Indian seamers, lead the wickets chart, though Chris Morris has caught up with the latter.

Avesh Khan Delhi 14 7.70 0
Chris Morris Rajasthan 14 8.61 1
Rahul Chahar Mumbai 11 7.21 1
Rashid Khan Hyderabad 10 6.14 0

Lalit Yadav’s economy of 6 is the best in the tournament so far. However, Rashid Khan, second on the list with 6.14, is also the fifth-highest wicket-taker.

Lalit Yadav Delhi 3 6.00 0

Avesh Khan Hyderabad 14 7.70 180 72 2.5
Prasidh Krishna Chennai 8 9.16 159 69 2.3

There are no new entries in the list of five best bowling figures. Andre Russell and Harshal are the only ones to take five-wicket hauls.

Bowler Team BB vs Date
Andre Russell Kolkata 5-15 Mumbai 13 April
Harshal Patel Bangalore 5-27 Mumbai 9 April
Deepak Chahar Chennai 4-13 Punjab 16 April
Chris Morris Rajasthan 4-23 Kolkata 24 April

Not surprisingly, Dhawan now has the most points in the race to become the MVP. However, he is only 18.5 points ahead of the fifth-ranked Rahul and Pat Cummins.

Ravindra Jadeja Chennai 149.5
Moeen Ali Chennai 146.5
