Bapu Nadkarni bowls record number of maidens
On this day in 1964, in the first Test between India and England in Madras, Bapu Nadkarni bowled 21 maiden overs in a row - a record for six-ball overs that still hasn't been broken, or ever will be, unless all Tests are played on the sort of wicket that England and India were presented with in Nagpur late last year. Bapu finished with figures of 32-27-5-0. He was frugal in the second innings too and ended up with figures of 6-4-6-2.
