What is Orange Cap? What is its significance in IPL? What makes it so dear to participating batsmen in the tournament? Orange Cap is one of the Indian Premier League awards, which is presented to the leading run-scorer at the end of the tournament season. Orange Cap was first introduced on April 25, 2008, a week after the commencement of the inaugural season of the IPL. The batsman with most runs in the tournament during the course of the season gets to wear the Orange Cap while fielding, with the overall leading run-scorer at the conclusion of the tournament winning the actual Orange Cap award on the day of the season's final. Former New Zealand skipper Brendon McCullum while playing for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) was the first player to become Orange Cap holder and got to wear the Orange Cap, and but it was Australian Shaun Marsh representing Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) who became the first winner of Orange Cap award.

The then IPL chairman and commissioner Lalit Modi said of the initiative, "Cricket is often remembered and recorded as statistics and not by material distinctions. The DLF Indian Premier League will create a distinction for the best performing batsman, which will be cherished and valued by each player through this initiative. The purpose of this initiative is to be innovative, create another unique piece of history that sets the DLF Indian Premier League apart from the crowd, and to reward outstanding achievements by the players." Of course, there is no Lalit Modi in IPL and no DLF, but the spirit of cricket remains intact. The noble idea of recognising an individual's efforts remains unscathed. It will truly be an exciting experience to follow the race among star batsmen to become the Orange Cap holder of IPL 2020.
