2 bowlers who bowled consecutive maiden overs in T20 World Cup history

 


The T20 World Cup is considered one of the toughest tournaments for bowlers. The reason behind this is that the T20 format allows batsmen to play freely. They do not think much about settling down on the field, but instead, they try to attack any bowler they come across.

Bowling a maiden over in a T20 match is considered a major achievement, no matter what the pitch is like. A maiden over means that the bowler has bowled six dot balls in the over without bowling a single wide or no-ball.

Though bowling a maiden over is extremely difficult, here is a list of two such bowlers who bowled consecutive maiden overs, that too in a T20 World Cup match.

1. Frank Nsubuga, T20 World Cup 2024

Uganda is making its first appearance in the ongoing T20 World Cup in the West Indies and the USA. The African country played its first match against Afghanistan, where it lost by 125 runs. However, in its second match, Uganda bounced back and defeated Papua New Guinea by three wickets.

43-year-old Frank Nsubuga was the hero of the Ugandan team. He bowled four overs and conceded just four runs, two of which were maiden overs.

2. Graeme Swann, T20 World Cup 2012

The first bowler to achieve this feat was former England off-spinner Graeme Swann. He bowled two consecutive maiden overs for England in a T20 World Cup 2012 group stage match against Afghanistan. The conditions in Sri Lanka were favorable for spin and the Afghan batsmen could not read Swann's bowling properly.
