Super Over in Cricket|| Know about it
A Super Over, also known as a one-over eliminator or simply a tiebreaker, is a method used in cricket to determine the winner of a limited-overs match when the scores of both teams are tied at the end of the regulation match. It is often used in T20 (Twenty20) and One Day International (ODI) matches. Here’s how a Super Over works:
- Each team selects three batsmen and one bowler to participate in the Super Over.
- The team batting first in the Super Over faces six deliveries from the opposition’s bowler.
- The team batting second in the Super Over then has its turn to bat, trying to chase down the target set by the first team.
- The team that scores the most runs in their Super Over is declared the winner of the match.
- If the scores are still tied after both teams have batted in the Super Over, the team that has hit the most boundaries (fours and sixes) throughout the match is declared the winner. If the boundary count is also tied, then the team that scored the most boundaries in the regular match is declared the winner.
- If there is still no winner, the Super Over can be repeated until a winner is determined.
Super Overs are exciting and dramatic moments in cricket, often deciding crucial matches in a thrilling fashion. They are commonly used in knockout stages of tournaments like the ICC Cricket World Cup and T20 leagues around the world to break ties and determine the advancing team.
