Orange Cap

After scoring 43 off 35 balls against Royal Challengers Bangalore in Match 56 of the IPL 2021, Delhi Capitals' Shikhar Dhawan reduced the gap between him and K.L. Rahul in the runs chart. Dhawan now has 544 runs at 128, while Rahul has 626 at 139, although the latter is not going to add anything on his tally because of Punjab Kings' elimination.

Chennai Super Kings' Faf du Plessis is between them, with 546 at 138. Ruturaj Gaikwad (533 at 137) is after Dhawan, followed by Glenn Maxwell (498 at 147) and Sanju Samson (484 at 137).

Let us have a look at how the top ten players on the Orange Cap list are stacked up after the league stage.
