IPL 2020 is the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League. Like every season, Orange Cap is obviously one of the important talking points of this tournament, and the craze of this Cap will continue to rise with the progress of this tournament.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, India failed to organize the IPL 2020 and the complete tournament has been shifted in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). This tournament has been scheduled between 19th September and 10th November 2020.
Since the first edition of the IPL, we have seen the Orange Cap. The most run-scorer at the end of the IPL season has been awarded the Orange Cap. During the entire IPL season, Orange Cap moves from one head to another head due to the continuous changes of the leading run-scorer in the season.
In every season, this process starts after all the participating teams play at least one game of the season. Only the final leader in this list holds this cap forever.
