IPL is one of the most competitive leagues globally, with star players being home to it. Bowling a maiden over is the most difficult thing in T20 cricket, and a bowler needs special skills to bowl six dot balls in the cash-rich league.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar is one of the bowlers who has bowled maidens in the tournament. The Indian pacer bowled six balls without conceding a run in the latest contest against Delhi Capitals, taking his overall tally to 10.
He has equalled Irfan Pathan’s record, who is in the second spot of bowlers with most maidens bowled in IPL. Former India cricketer Praveen Kumar heads the elusive list with 14 maidens to his name.
