Anil Kumble of India thrived on Bowling line and length in his career and comes 3rd while no one will be susprized to see Glenn McGrath at fourth position although he played not many tests. Lance Gibbs had even shorter test career but bowled several maidens.

What is the origin of the phrase 'maiden over' when referring to cricket?

A "maiden over" is one where no runs are scored. The word originates in Old English meaning young women or virgin and has developed from its original virginal meaning to also cover something new, clean or untouched (maiden voyage, outing, etc.). This latter meaning is actually used in other aspects of cricket to describe a player's first instance of an achievement (such as a batsman's first or "maiden" century).The phrase to bowl a maiden or just to bowl someone over meaning to overwhelm the batsman has been exported back out of cricket to general life. In reconnecting one of the original meanings of maiden the phrase became to mean to do something romantic and overwhelm a young girl and generally to overwhelm someone.
