Let us tell you that Kohli was the highest run scorer in the tournament and he won the Orange Cap for the second time in his career. He scored 741 runs in 15 matches at an average of 61.75. Sunil Narine impressed with both bat and ball. He scored 488 runs with the bat and took 17 wickets and won the Most Valuable Player award for the third time in IPL.
