New Delhi. In T20 style cricket dominated by batsmen, bowling the first over is no less than an achievement for any bowler. Although cricket itself is considered a 'game of batsmen', but in T20 cricket, there is such a flurry of fours and sixes that it proves to be a nightmare for many bowlers. Bowlers who perform brilliantly in Tests and ODIs also often find themselves in the hitlist of batsmen in T20. In this format, only those bowlers are more successful who are accurate and do not give the batsman the opportunity to open hands through changes and variations in pace.

Many times the speed of the bowler's balls also becomes helpful in the aggressive shots of the batsman. The faster the bowler throws the ball, the faster the ball crosses the boundary. In such a situation, spinners are generally more successful in controlling the run rate than fast bowlers in the T20 format. Even in the ICC T20 World Cup, spinners have an 'edge' over fast bowlers in terms of economy (runs given per over) and maiden overs. However, fast bowlers like Jasprit Bumrah and Lasith Malinga can be considered exceptions in this matter. There are a large number of spinners who have recorded an economy of less than 7 in the T20 World Cup. Spin bowlers like Wanindu Hasaranga, Samuel Badree and Natham McCullum have taken wickets while bowling at an economy of less than 6. Asian spinners dominate in bowling the maximum number of maiden overs in the tournament.

In T20 World Cup, Team India could never win against two teams, never lost against 4 teams.

Harbhajan has bowled maximum 4 overs of maidens.
India's offbreak bowler Harbhajan Singh holds the record for bowling the most number of maiden overs in the T20 World Cup. From the first T20 World Cup in 2007 (in which Team India became champion) to 2012, Bhajji played four tournaments and bowled a total of 69 overs in 18 innings of 19 matches, in which there were four maiden overs. He has taken 16 wickets at an average of 29.25, economy of 6.78 and strike rate of 25.87. During this period, Harbhajan's best performance was four wickets for 12 runs. He took 7 wickets at an average of 26.00 in 2007, 5 wickets at an average of 26.20 in 2009 and four wickets at an average of 8.00 in 2012. Harbhajan did not take a single wicket in five matches of the 2010 T20 World Cup.
