IPL 2022 Orange Cap – Top Contenders


IPL 2022 Orange Cap: As the tournament is nearing its end, the race for playoffs is heating but also some top quality batsmen are fighting for the prestigious orange cap which will be awarded to the batsman with most runs at the end of the season. Lets take a look at some of the contenders for the orange cap.

IPL 2022 orange cap

Jos Buttler had started the season with a bang with some consistent big runs but has faded away in the last few games. It is only fair that no human can maintain such a form for a long period of time but looks like Jos Buttler has done enough already to secure the orange cap for the season. Jos Buttler has scored just 59 runs in his last 3 Innings, with RR in a delicate position at the moment, they would need him to regain the form he showed at the start of the season.

Jos Buttler, KL Rahul leading Orange Cap 2022 race

KL Rahul is a run machine at this level. He just loves to accumulate runs for his team at the top of the order. Though he is long way away from reaching Jos Buttler, he has had a very good season so far and is the 2nd leading run getter in this season. With his team set to make the playoffs, and with a slump in form for Jos Buttler, there is every chance that KL Rahul can end up with the orange cap at the end of LSG’s campaign.

Though he missed the first 2 games for Delhi Capitals, he is their leading run getter in this season and 3rd on the list of highest run scorer for this season.
