ICC Changes Super Over Rule

The ICC has decided to change Super Over rule, putting an end to boundary countback as a way of deciding knockout games.
 
After board meetings in Dubai, the ICC decided that in semi-finals and finals in future global tournaments, if the teams score the same number of runs in their Super Overs, the Super Over will be repeated until one team wins.
 
The Super Over will also now be in place for every game in both 20-over and 50-over World Cups, having previously only applied in the knockout stages. In the group stages of a tournament, if a Super Over is tied then the match result will be logged as a tie.
