    Explain Maiden Over Rule

    I have a question about maiden over.

    Lets suppose the following scenario:

    Shoaib Akhtar has bowled 4 balls of the over and got injured and leaves the field. Then Abdur-Razzaq bowls the next 2 balls. Zero runs have been scored in this over.

    So at the end of over:

    .......................O M R W
    Shoaib Akhtar: 0.4 ? 0 0
    Abdur-Razzaq: 0.2 ? 0 0

    Tell me in whose account the maiden over will go? And also please tell me how many number of overs can Shoaib Akhtar and Abdur-Razzaq bowl afrer this over in 50 overs match.


    Thankyou very much.

    Both bowlers would most likely bowl a further 9 overs maximum, making it 9.4 for Akhtar and 9.2 for Razzaq.

    However, I don't think that's technically the maximum. If say Akhtar recovers from his genital warts and Saeed Ajmal gets called for chucking after bowling 5.4 overs, I don't think there is anything stopping Akhtar from bowling those 2 balls so he ends up bowling 10 overs.

    Neither bowler would get the maiden over IMO. But I don't have concrete proof.

    Yep, my first thought as well.

    I agree as well, although I don't think the concept of a maiden over is actually recognised in the laws (no reason why it should be that I can think of) so in some ways its a matter of personal taste but convention seems to favour the no maiden approach - after all if you take the final wicket of the fifth ball of a scoreless over you don't get a maiden for that

    A maiden is a full over of dot balls from a single bowler where no runs are scored from the bat or at fault of the bowler (so no wides or no-balls), so to the OP that wouldn't be a maiden.

    Just one look at either of their noggins is enough to tell you they would have a hard time notching up a maiden.

    A long time ago in site discussion I said you should get points if you're the best answer to a thread which starts as a question.

    Too harsh, but too funny at the same time
