Orange Cap in WPL 2024

22 matchesFeb 23 - Mar 17
The Orange Cap is awarded to the player that finishes as the highest run scorer in a Women's Premier League season. Delhi Capitals captain Meg Lanning, who retired from international cricket and thus ended a prolific career at the helm of the Australian team, holds the cap having scored 345 runs at a strike rate of 39.11 last season with two fifties. Mumbai Indians and England's Natalie Sciver-Brunt was second with 332 runs while Lanning's fellow Australian Tahlia McGrath of UP Warriorz finished third with 302 runs. McGrath scored four half-centuries which was the most by any player and there were no centuries in the inaugural WPL season. The second season of the WPL starts on February 23, with the final scheduled to be held on March 17. The matches will be played at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru and the Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi.
