5 bowlers who bowled the most maidens in the IPL
The ability to bowl dots and build maidens is perhaps like gold dust in T20s.
Amidst all the insanity, a brief moment of silence is always very welcome. In the cauldron when things are flying all over the place, few moments of solitude are appreciated and in the context of Twenty20 cricket and all the madness which goes with it, bowlers who have the ability to press the pause button are hailed as match-winners.
The ability to bowl dots and build maidens is perhaps like gold dust in T20s, and in this particular slider, we take a look at five bowlers in the Indian Premier League to have bowled the maximum maidens and have been an integral part of their respective teams.
#5 Dhawal Kulkarni
A domestic stalwart with Mumbai, Dhawal Kulkarni was always talked about with a lot of panache in Indian cricketing parleys.
However, he has never got going with the Indian team despite being given few sporadic runs.
Having said this, he has been one of the most honest performers in the Indian Premier League with the different franchises he has played for.
In 72 matches, the swing bowler has managed to bowl seven maidens, which is no mean achievement in the IPL.
Along the way, he picked up 75 wickets at an economy rate of 7.97 and with an average of 24.75.
