In an interview with Esports streamer Gulrez Khan, Chahal made surprising choices for the players he believes will excel in the upcoming tournament.

“I will score the most runs,” said Chahal jokingly. When asked about the Orange Cap winner, he turned serious and revealed his choice.

Contrary to expectations, Chahal excluded renowned batters like Virat Kohli, Shubman Gill, Faf Du Plessis and David Warner from his prediction for the Orange Cap winner.

Instead, he named Yashasvi Jaiswal and Jos Buttler as his top picks for clinching the prestigious title. Chahal confidently stated that one of these two players will emerge as the highest run-scorer in IPL 2024. While Buttler secured the Orange Cap in IPL 2022 with an impressive tally of 863 runs, Jaiswal showcased his potential in IPL 2023, accumulating 625 runs with remarkable consistency.

Orange cap will go to [Yashasvi] Jaiswal or Jos Buttler,” said Chahal.
