CPL Records – Most Maiden Overs in CPL

T20 Leagues CPL


CPL Records and Statistics: Which players have bowled the most maiden overs in CPL?

The Caribbean Premier League (CPL) is one of the Twenty20 leagues that is organized by the West Indies cricket association. It is an annual tournament that was started in 2013. There are 6 franchise teams that play in the league and help cricket lovers experience the colors of the Caribbean. The franchise teams are owned by Indians who also own the IPL teams and have a strong conviction in the cricket players across the globe. The Twenty20 tournament shows the skills of bowlers and batters to work under pressure and in limited overs matches. 

The T20 format is majorly about batters but the expectations from bowlers are also high on their ability to dominate the batters and reduce a team’s ability to score high. With dot balls also, the bowlers can create pressure on the batsmen. Bowling maiden overs is also a way to create pressure on the batsmen. Although it is not easily seen, it is a great accomplishment for the bowlers as well. Khelraja brings to you the latest records on the most maiden overs that were bowled by experienced and skilled players in the CPL history:

Bowler Matches Overs Maiden
Sunil Narine 86 339.1 14
Jason Holder 71 236.4 9
Imran Tahir 43 166.0 5
Chris Green 44 155.0 5
Sheldon Cottrell 65 226.5 5
  1. Sheldon Cottrell (5 Maiden Overs)

At the fifth position we have Sheldon Cottrell who has bowled 5 maiden overs out of the 226.5 that he has actually bowled in the CPL matches. He has played a total of 65 matches in the CPL seasons and continues to invest his skills in his abilities. He shares the score of 5 maiden overs with two other players that stand on the fourth and third position of this category itself. He made his CPL debut in 2013 and he has taken about 80 wickets in these overs. 

  1. Chris Green (5 Maiden Overs)

At the fourth position, we have Chris Green who has recorded 5 maiden overs as well. Green played 44 matches in total since his career started in the CPL league. He started playing for the Guyana Amazon Warriors in the beginning but later he even played for the Jamaica Tallawahs. He played a total of 44 matches and bowled 155 overs which is less than Cottrell. Thus, bowling 5 maiden overs was a high factor here and caused a negative impact on the economy rate of the bowler.

  1. Imran Tahir (5 Maiden Overs)

The third position is jointly held by three cricketers – Imran Tahir, Chris Green and Sheldon Cottrell. All three bowlers have thrown 5 maiden overs. Tahir gets the third position because of 166 overs thrown in total in the CPL matches. The number of matches that he played are 43 as well. Imran is a South African international cricketer and spin bowler. His economy rate in the CPL matches is about 5.95. He also took 60 wickets in the matches that he played. Tahir may have bowled 5 maiden overs, but he is an excellent player who has been a strong part of the CPL franchise teams. 

  1. Jason Holder (9 Maiden Overs)

Jason Holder is seen as one of the best bowlers that the CPL franchise teams have seen until now. He was also a strong player for the West Indies team as a whole. He stands at the second place for the player with the most maiden overs in CPL. He has played about 71 matches in the CPL until now. The total number of overs bowled by him were 236.4. In all of these overs, Holder was able to collect 54 wickets and the economy rate is recorded to be 7.42. Expectations from Holder are high with his good track record in the past few matches. 

  1. Sunil Narine (14 Maiden Overs)

At the first position, we have Sunil Narine who bowled 14 maiden overs. Narine is certainly one of the best all-rounders that any team can have. He has shown his batting abilities and his capability to bowl in any situation. He is a smart bowler with many wickets to his name and a high scoring rate. He played 86 matches in the CPL until now and has taken 90 wickets of players in these matches. His economy rate is also incredible at 5.32. His record of 14 maidens is unbelievable.
