ICC Makes Changes With the Super Over Rule

The new rule will be effective for the 2023 ICC Cricket World Cup

The International Cricket Council (ICC) made changes to the super over rule. In this year’s World Cup, England won in the final match and defeated New Zealand. However, the team’s victory in the final was surrounded with controversy. 

Tim Wigmore wrote on Twitter, ‘Cricket World Cup final leads to an ICC rule change: from now on, Super Over repeated until one team scores more runs. Had those rules been in place for 2019 final, would have been another Super Over’.

During the World Cup final, England and New Zealand had a super over after having tied at 241. The super over also ended with a tie and the winner was declared by superior boundary count. A lot of fans were outraged at the decision. 

‘Following on from a recommendation from the ICC Cricket Committee, the Chief Executives' Committee agreed that use of the Super Over as a way to decide results at ICC events will be retained. Both the Cricket Committee and CEC agreed it was an exciting and engaging conclusion to the game and will remain in place covering all games at both ODI and T20I World Cups’, the ICC said. 

The International Cricket Council (ICC) is the governing body of cricket. To know more about the ICC, read the page on Betwala.
