Bowlers with Most Maiden Overs Against CSK
4. Numerous Contenders (1)
As one would expect on a list of bowlers who have Highest Maiden over against CSK (Chennai Super Kings) in IPL matches, there are a number of bowlers who have bowled at least one maiden over against the men in yellow. This list includes a number of world-class talents and maybe even some forgotten faces. From the Indian contingent, we have the likes of Pragyan Ojha, who turned out for Sunrisers Hyderabad and Mumbai Indians among others; Praveen Kumar, who featured for the likes of Royal Challengers Bangalore and Gujarat Lions, and Dhawal Kulkarni, who has represented the Mumbai Indians as well as Rajasthan Royals.
Foreign talents include Sunil Narine, who still features in the IPL for Kolkata Knight Riders, and will no doubt be looking to improve on this tally in 2020. The same goes for Rashid Khan, Afghanistan’s spin wizard who is one of the crown jewels in the Sunrisers Hyderabad bowling lineup. The list also includes two legendary Souzth Africans – Jacques Kallis, the supremely talented all-rounder who features for Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders, as well as Dale Steyn whose career has been hampered by injury but still continues to impress. However, the name most familiar to all associated with CSK on this list of bowlers who have bowled the most maidens against Chennai Super Kings in IPL matches will be that of Harbhajan Singh. The veteran off-spinner, who enjoyed several years of success with Mumbai Indians, now dons the yellow jersey of CSK!

3. Zaheer Khan (2)
Tied for third place and only separated by virtue of playing more matches against CSK on this list of bowlers who have bowled the Most Maiden Overs Against CSK in IPL matches is the old warhorse, Zaheer Khan. Zak, as he was fondly known, turned out for Delhi Daredevils, Mumbai Indians, and Royal Challengers Bangalore during his IPL career, bowled two maidens against CSK, which is no mean feat for a fast bowler. However, given the control that the left-arm seamer exhibited while bowling, it’s no surprise to see him make this list.

2. Yuzvendra Chahal (2)
Royal Challengers Bangalore’s leg-spinning maestro Yuzvendra Chahal just about beats Zaheer Khan to take second place on this list of bowlers who have bowled the Highest Maiden over against CSK in IPL matches. Chahal, who also happens to be a gifted chess player, uses all the skill and guile that make a successful chess player and translates those skills on the cricket field when he comes to bowl, spinning a web around his opponents.
Although Chahal has also bowled two maidens against CSK, he has done so in fewer innings – just 9 in comparison with Zaheer’s 12. Also, Chahal is still considered to be at the peak of his career, and surely has a few more spell-binding maiden overs up his sleeve! With his place in the Indian team slightly iffy these days, Chahal will no doubt be raring to go against the IPL’s best in an effort to once again stake his claim as India’s frontline spinner!

1. Bhuvneshwar Kumar (5)
Taking a huge jump on this list of bowlers who have bowled the Most Maiden Overs Against CSK in IPL encounters, we reach Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who sits proudly atop this list with not three, not four, but FIVE maiden overs against CSK! Given the fact that Bhuvi usually opens the bowling and closes out the innings, two of the most high-scoring periods of the game, his stats are extremely impressive. The paceman from UP combines no small measure of craft and guile with an incredible amount of control and variations to outfox opponents, and will no doubt be looking to do much more of the same when the 2020 IPL season comes around.
