ICC changes super over rules

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has made an announcement to change the rules of the Super Over.

According to the details, ICC takes this big step after controversial result of World Cup 2019.

ICC makes major changes to Super Over rules in semifinals and finals of international competitions.

Boundaries will not be counted for the Super Over tie in the knockout match but will be played again.

In the case of a semi-final or final match tie, the Super Over will be played until one team scores more than the other team.

If there is no result found in the group matches after the super over, then the match will be considered tie.

During the World Cup 2019, England was declared the winner due to the extra-overs tie for the final match between England and New Zealand.

Earlier, England, the World Cup 2019 Champions were the most represented with four players in the World Cup team of the tournament announced by the International Cricket Council (ICC) with New Zealand’s Kane Williamson captaining the side and without any Pakistani player in the team.

England opener Jason Roy, middle-order batsman Joe Root, all-rounder Ben Stokes and pacer Jofra Archer made the team following Sunday’s victory over the Black Caps in a thrilling final where the hosts prevailed on boundary count after a tied Super Over.

New Zealand’s Lockie Ferguson was the only other Kiwi in the side, while Australian pace bowler Mitchell Starc was picked after taking the most wickets in the tournament with 27.

The side was picked by ex-internationals Ian Bishop, Ian Smith and Isa Guha, along with cricket writer Lawrence Booth, while ICC general manager cricket, Geoff Allardice, was the fifth member and convener of the committee.
