Orange Cap in IPL 2024: Gujarat Titans faced a comprehensive defeat at the hands of Delhi Capitals, but Shubman Gill re-entered the top 5 in the Orange Cap list

Orange Cap in IPL 2024: After days of high-scoring matches, Wednesday saw a low-key affair in the 2024 Indian Premier League, as only 191 runs were across both innings, with Delhi Capitals registering a thumping six-wicket win over the Gujarat Titans. Opting to bowl in Ahmedabad, the DC bowled the home side out for just 89 in 17.3 overs before chasing the target down in just 8.5 overs. Consequently, there weren't major changes in the Orange Cap list too.

Shubman Gill, the GT captain, scored only 8 runs in the match but it was enough to take him to the top-5 in the list of highest run-getters. Gill overtook Rohit Sharma at no.5 with 263 runs to his name in seven matches, which remains the only change in the top-5 of the list. Virat Kohli continues to lead the list with 361 runs to his name, while Riyan Parag (318), Sunil Narine (276), and Sanju Samson (276) follow him at 2nd, 3rd, and 4th spots, respectively.
