The world cup 2019 final result decided form the boundary rule after the final was tied and also the super was tied. A controversy was created that why ICC can make a change in rules. Now Cricket Australia is ready to introduce a new rule if the final Tie or the Super overs tie then the result will not decide from the boundary rule. Cricket Australia introduces multiple super overs to be played in case of tied final.
The new rules will be used in the BBL and WBBL 2019/20. The semi-finals and final result will decide from the multiple super overs.
Cricket Australia added a provision to the playing conditions that states, “In circumstances where Cricket Australia has unavoidable time restraints, such as, but not limited to, double-header semi-finals, it shall limit the number of possible super overs and advise teams either pre-match or prior to the final super over. In the case of a tied super over-under (such) circumstances then, the higher placed team will be declared the winner.”
CA’s head of Big Bash Leagues, Alistair Dobson, said multiple Super Overs was the best way to resolve a tie. “We hope that allowing for multiple Super Overs in WBBL and BBL Finals will provide our teams and fans with the best possible experience,” he said. We look forward to another competitive season for both leagues and believe we have a strong system in place should a nail-biting knockout match arise.”
Big Bash League 2019/20 will start from December 17, and the final will take place on February 8. Women’s big bash league 2019/20 will begin from October 18, and the final will take place on December 8.
