Super over is a new and exciting concept in cricket. It was first timed tried in a Twenty20 match between New Zealand and West Indies. Super Over is similar to penalty shoot-out that we see in some of the other sports.

  • After a Tied T20 match, the batting team will nominate 3 batsmen while the bowling team will select one bowler. If the batting side loses 2 wickets before the end of the over, the innings will change.

  • Number of runs scored and wickets lost calculate to who won.

  • If number of runs scored and wickets lost in one off super over are equal, total number of sixes hit in the match by each team decides who won.

  • If still equal, number of fours hit decides the winner.
