The International Cricket Council (ICC) has reverted to using the Super Over to determine a winner in case of a tie in the 2015 Cricket World Cup final. The super over was in place for the 2011 Cricket World Cup final but it had been scrapped in the lead up to the tournament in Australia and New Zealand.
The ICC, at its board meeting in Dubai, approved the super over for World Cup final in case of tie to determine winner and also approved an amendment to its Code of Conduct application. All captains will enter the World Cup with a clean slate, and this application has been extended to include all ICC events in the future.

The official result of the match would be a “tie” but within the context of the tournament or series, the winning team of the “Super Over” is declared the winner of the match and the victory is seen as equivalent of one earned in a regular match.
