Cricket/result of a match


In a limited overs cricket match if a match is tied, than cosequent of that a super over  is played. Again in super over  if the match is tied,  what will be the result ?

G'day Anirudha, great question. Super overs only apply in 20/20 matches

(per ICC rules. What happens with domestic or local matches may be different.)

In the event of the teams having the same score after the one over per side
eliminator has been completed, the team whose batsmen
hit the most number of boundaries combined from its two innings in both the
main match and the one over per side eliminator shall be the winner.

If the number of boundaries hit by both teams is equal, the team whose
batsmen scored more boundaries during its innings in the main match
(ignoring the over per side eliminator) shall be the winner.
