The International Cricket Council (ICC) has changed the super over rule for all its major events.
How does the new rule work?
As per new rule, in case of a super over tie there will be a repeated super over until one team has more runs than the other.
A Super Over is a tie-breaking method used in limited-overs cricket matches, where both teams play a single, additional over of six balls to determine the winner of the match.
A match which goes to a Super Over is officially declared a “tie”, and won by the team who scored the most runs in the Super Over.
If the Super Over also ends in a tie, the winner is typically decided by the number of boundaries scored throughout the match.
As per new rules, group stage matches that are still tied after a Super Over will remain as a tie. Matches in either a semi-final or final that are tied, will continue until one team wins a Super Over.
A Super Over was first used in 2008 in Twenty20, replacing the bowl-out method that was previously used for breaking a tie.
