Deepti Sharma is the first Indian to bowl 3 maidens in T20Is



Surat:  All-rounder Deepti Sharma had an extraordinary outing in India’s first T20I against South Africa in Surat on Tuesday. She ended with figures of 4/8 with three of the four overs to lead India to victory. If that was not enough she bowled three maidens and made her way into the record books. This is the first time that an Indian has bowled as many maidens in a T20I match.

Deepti gave away runs only off the 19th ball that she bowled in the match. Two of these overs were wicket maidens with Deepti taking two on the trot in the 9th over and a wicket in the 14th.

Sharma, who came into the attack in the third over, bowled in three spells, bowling the third and fifth over (in her first spell) of the innings, then returning into the attack, bowling the 14th over (in her second spell) before returning to bowl the penultimate over of the match to complete her quota of four overs.

While India used her services in three different spells, she bowled with a great control and bowled three maiden overs as she became the first Indian to bowl three maiden over in T20Is.
