    KARACHI: After controversial world cup finals in 2019, International Cricket Council changes Super Over rule for the cricket game.

    The International Cricket Council (ICC) has scrapped a controversial boundary counting rule from super-over regulation that helped England win the World Cup 2019 final against New Zealand.

    ICC faced severe criticism from various quarters after the winner of the ICC World Cup 2019 was decided on the number of boundaries hit by a team after New Zealand and England, both were tied in 50 over competition and the super-over tiebreaker.

    However, the ICC has now decided to scrap the boundary rule. However, super over will still be played and in event of a tied super over, another super over will be played.

    Loool too late. The realistic chance of a tied final, followed by a tied super over is virtually next to none.

    the original rule was so retarded in the first place.

    Too late.

    Yes, odds are very low that you will have tied final and super over, but even if there is 0.01 % of chance, you need to have a comprehensive rule to cover that scenario. Otherwise, such controversies will always occur.
