This year, England won the world cup 2019 by the boundary count rule after the match has ended in a tie. After this, the discussion began that ICC needs to change this rule. Now, International cricket council (ICC) scarps boundary count as a way to decide the result of semi-finals and finals in ICC events. Incase a super over is tied; it will be repeated until one team has more runs than the other. But this change only applicable for semi-finals and finals. If a match is tied during the league stage than the match will tie, no super over.

“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 after its board meeting here.

“In group stages, if the Super Over is tied, the match will be tied. In semifinals and finals, there is one change to the Super Over-regulation in keeping with the basic principle of scoring more runs than the opponent to win; the Super Over will be repeated until one team has more runs than the other.”

“In examining a whole range of options, the Board felt a major men’s and women’s event each year will bring consistency to our calendar while complementing bilateral cricket, giving our sport a strong future foundation,” said ICC chairman Shashank Manohar.
