Rahul has so far scored 222 runs in three matches, including one hundred and a half century for Kings XI and has the Orange Cap. He is followed by teammate Mayank Agarwal (221 runs in three games) and Chennai Super Kings' Faf du Plessis (173 runs in three games).

Mohammad Shami of Kings XI (seven wickets in three games with average of 11.71) and Chennai's Sam Curran (five wickets in three games) are the next two top wicket-takers.

These running caps are presented to the leading run scorer and wicket-taker and keep changing hands throughout the duration of the tournament.

In the points table, Delhi Capitals have once again made it to the top spot, courtesy Rajasthan Royals' defeat against Kolkata Knight Riders which the Dinesh Karthik-led side won by 37 runs at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Wednesday evening.
