A wicket maiden is a term used in cricket. Many cricket fans will be familiar with the concept of bowling a maiden over, which is the phrase used when the bowler delivers six balls without the batsman scoring a single run. A wicket maiden marks even greater success for the bowler, being an over in which no runs are scored and at least one wicket is taken.
Betting on a wicket maiden involves in play betting which attempts to correctly predict the fall of the next wicket and the number of runs a batsmen will score during the next over. Put these two things together and you have a wicket maiden, and guessing when one is going to occur involves following the action of the game closely. It’s also worth noting that a wicket maiden is more likely to occur toward the end of an innings, when the wicket will have deteriorated, and there’s a chance that the less skilled, lower order batsmen are at the crease. Wicket maidens are also more of a rarity during the shorter forms of cricket, such as Twenty20 matches or one day internationals. This is because scoring runs quickly is so imperative that maiden overs in general are rare, even if the risks taken mean wickets fall more quickly. In the longer form of the game, on the other hand, a batsman facing an in form bowler may well opt for simply getting through an over rather than trying to build the score, and one mistake or an especially effective delivery could see them falling to a wicket maiden.
