During the inaugural season of the IPL, the team opted for a less expensive alternative to the standard white ball. For this reason, the orange holder was introduced. It is not the first time an orange holder has been used in IPL, but it’s the first time it has been used with the team in the mix.
It’s not just the orange holder that is worth a gander. The team has had a few notable batsmen in recent times, including the likes of SRH’s Chris Gayle and Mumbai Indians’ Shreyas Iyer. They also boast a plethora of players from seasoned professionals to promising first-timers. The Orange holder was also used by the likes of Kane Williamson, who was able to recoup his lost bat and take the Sunrisers to the top of the table. This was followed by another win in the IPL, which saw the team make a surprise comeback against arch-rival Chennai Super Kings.
The IPL has long been a source of entertainment and fun for fans and players alike. There are several awards awarded at the end of each season, including the most valuable player and the most stylish player. The most notable is the Orange holder, which was used by a couple of players including the aforementioned David Warner and Kane Williamson. They also had a couple of notable batsmen in the form of the likes of Rahul Dravid, who showed off his batting skills in both the T20 and ODI formats, and the ever-reliable Yuvraj Singh. Several other notable players have worn the Orange holder including the likes of Chennai’s Suresh Shinde, who deserved a spot in the IPL Hall of Fame for his consistent performance with the bat. The likes of Dwayne Bravo, Gautam Gambhir and Ashish Nehra also enjoyed a storied IPL career.
The IPL is a rip-roaring time for the fans, but the competition is fierce. Aside from the usual suspects, a host of talented first-timers and world-class batsmen will be making their debuts in the coming months. The IPL’s marquee players have also been rewarded with a few notable awards, such as the most valuable player and the most valuable player of the year.
