DUBAI: On Monday, the super overrule is tweaked by the International Cricket Council for all its major events that followed the uproar regarding the outcome of the men’s World Cup final in July where England declared the winner against New Zealand on boundary count.
After scores were tied at 241 in the World Cup final both the teams had headed into the Super over. While the Super over also ended in a tie as both teams making 15, the winner was decided with regard to superior boundary count. The wrath of fans and former players followed that nerve-wracking final and has been faced by the ICC over the controversial rule.
Finally, changes had been made to the rule and if in case both teams are tied in final or semifinal, even after the Super over then it will be repeated until one team clearly wins the match.
According to the Chief Executives Committee the use of the Super over for deciding results at ICC events will be continued. After the board meeting ICC said, “The cricket committee and CEC have agreed over the exciting and engaging conclusion to the game and it will certainly continue covering all games for both ODI and T20I World Cups”.
“For group stages, if the super over ends up with tie then the match will be tied. The regulation of the super over is slightly different for finals and semi-finals while keeping the basic principle to score more runs than the opponent for winning, the super over will be repeated until there is a clear winner”.
It has been decided by the board that the eight-year cycle commencing in 2023, will be comprised of eight events for both men and women, four men’s U19 events and for women’s U19 events.
“By examining a whole range of options, it was felt by the board that major events for both men and women can bring consistency to their calendar and by complimenting bilateral cricket it will give a strong future foundation to our sport”, said by Shashank Manohar, the chairman of ICC.
“It will enable the growth of the sport providing clear structure and context and it will place greater engagement opportunities for all the stakeholders. Moving towards a bidding model will provide equal opportunities to all members for hosting ICC events post 2023”.
