A maiden over is nothing short of gold dust in the IPL. When batsmen are constantly on the charge, bowling a tight maiden over can actually be a match-winning one as it really piles on the pressure on the batting side. Hence, those bowlers who can produce maiden overs regularly in this format should be lauded.
Here we look at the top five bowlers with the most maidens in IPL history.
5. 7 Maidens - Dhawal Kulkarni (Gujarat Lions, Mumbai Indians, Rajasthan Royals):
A very underrated seam bowler, Dhawal Kulkarni has got excellent control and precision. He has gone for runs on odd days but he bowls really tight lines and can move the ball away. Batsmen find it tough to handle him on slow pitches and hence Dhawal has bowled 7 maidens in his 66-match IPL career till now. This is indeed a terrific record to have and the seam bowler would love to enhance that tally in the upcoming season for his team Gujarat Lions.
