Chennai Super Kings opener Ruturaj Gaikwad has become the new owner of the IPL 2021 Orange Cap after his phenomenal century against the Rajasthan Royals.

Gaikwad overtook his teammate Faf du Plessis, Delhi Capitals opener Shikhar Dhawan, Rajasthan Royals captain Sanju Samson and Punjab Kings skipper KL Rahul to become the leading run-getter in the 2021 Indian Premier League after Match No. 47.

Unfortunately, Ruturaj's maiden IPL ton was in vain as the Chennai Super Kings lost to the Rajasthan Royals by seven wickets. RR captain Sanju Samson scored 28 runs to overtake Faf du Plessis on the IPL 2021 Orange Cap leaderboard while Yashasvi Jaiswal entered the Top 20 after his explosive knock of 50 runs against CSK.
