Prime News, International Sport, Cricket, Dubai (UAE), October 15:- The International Cricket Council (ICC) has changed the ‘super over’ rule for all its major events following the uproar over the outcome of the men’s World Cup final this year when England were declared winners against New Zealand on boundary count.
In July this year, England won their first-ever World Cup title. In the final, winner was not decided after the 50-over and super over action, both of which were tied.
In the end, England were announced as the winner as they had hit more boundaries, 26, as compared to New Zealand’s 17 boundaries in the match. (Inputs: Agencies, NGB)
