In cricket if any bowler bowls all 6 balls of his over without any run than it’s called a maiden over. In T20 or ODI cricket the value of maiden over is much high. Bowler gets highly appreciation if he gets maiden over in T20 cricket match. Generally bowlers don’t have any chance to bowl a maiden over in power play (first 6 overs) and in death overs. They have chance to ball maiden over in between 7th to 15th over where batsmen plays with slow strike rate and don’t get chance to get out.
In IPL cricket Praveen Kumar has bowled maximum maiden overs and tops the list with 14 overs. Praveen Kumar is not speedster but good with his swing bowling. Irfan Pathan is on second place with 10 maiden overs in IPL league. Both top bowler is not part of Indian cricket team right now and marking their presence strongly to Indian selectors.
