The second phase of the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League, i.e, IPL 2021, is set to commence on 19th September with the first match to be played between two of the most successful sides of the tournament – Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings. Stakes are at an all time high and the fans of all the respective teams have started trash talking each other. With it, various head-to-head and other unique stats have started emerging up and in this article, we are going to discuss just one of them.
We all know that Mumbai Indians have won the Indian Premier League for a record 5 times, the highest by any team in the competition. Chennai Super Kings are second on the list and they have won 3 titles. However, Number of IPL trophies is not the only sphere in which MD Dhoni’s side is lacking behind Mumbai Indians. In a recent statistic that came out, it has been revealed that Mumbai Indians’ bowlers have bowled the highest number of Maiden Overs across all the seasons of IPL – 39. CSK is second on this list as well with a tally of 37 maiden overs, tied alongside Punjab Kings.
4th on the list is Virat Kohli’s side Royal Challengers Bangalore. They have managed to bowl a total of 32 maiden overs. Delhi Capitals, 5th, have bowled 30 maiden overs.
The remaining three teams are too far behind the top 5. Rajasthan Royals who are seated on no. 6 on the list have bowled 37 maiden overs, followed by Kolkata Knight Riders (21) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (20).
The fact the Sunrisers Hyderabad fared last on the list is acceptable provided the fact that they started playing in the Indian Premier League in 2012.
