Super Over

Tie-breaking method used in cricket

Super Over    ▸ Facts   ▸ Comments   ▸ News   ▸ Videos   

A Super Over, also called a one-over eliminator or officially a one over per side eliminator, is a tie-breaking method used in limited-overs cricket matches, where both teams play a single, additional over of six balls to determine the winner of the match. A match which goes to a Super Over is officially declared a "tie", and won by the team who score the most runs in the Super Over. If the Super Over also ends in a tie, it is followed by another Super Over. Previously, the winner was typically decided by the number of boundaries scored throughout the match. This rule was later repealed because it garnered criticism after the 2019 Cricket World Cup Final.
