The probable winner of the Orange Cap and the current holder of the same, David Warner has been miles ahead of the rest as he has accumulated as many as 604 runs in the tournament with more to go, given that Hyderabad would aim to play at least two more matches in the Playoffs.
The New South Welshman has consistently provided explosive starts in the tournament and even finished off games for his side. He raised many eyebrows by bringing up his ton against Kolkata Knight Riders within 11 overs of the innings. David Warner ended up with the highest score of the tournament with the help of his 126 in the same match.
He has already hit the most number of boundaries in the tournament and scored four half-centuries in the tournament along with the ton against Knight Riders. Warner also had an exceptional series as far as captaincy is concerned, giving opportunities to the likes of Siraj and Vijay Shankar who have blossomed in the tournament.
