Bowling in a World Cup final is one of the biggest dreams for any cricketer. As a cricketer, you do all the hard work to play for your country on the biggest stage and help them win the trophy. Bowling in the 20-20 format is, perhaps, tougher than the other two formats. And, to bowl, a maiden over in a 20-20 World Cup final takes a big heart and immense confidence in your abilities.

Over the years, a lot of bowlers have showcased their mettle in a World Cup final but only some have managed to bowl maiden overs. On that note, we take a look at five bowlers who have bowled a maiden over in a 20-20 World Cup final match:

India’s former pacer, S Sreesanth exhibited a sensational performance in the 2007 20-20 World Cup. However, he proved to be a bit expensive in the final against Pakistan. Notably, he conceded 44 runs in three overs and the one over he bowled was a maiden. He accomplished the feat against Pakistan’s Younis Khan in the fourth over of the innings.
