When the match is getting tied then why some of matches remains tie, and some goes to Super Over?


Super over, or one over eliminator is used when both the teams end up on the same score at the end of a T20 game. This is similar to a penalty shootout in football or a tie-breaker in tennis.

Both team captains have to give a list of three batsmen and a bowler from their team to the umpire. These 4 players from each team will participate in the super over. The chasing team at the end of the T20 game will bat first in the super-over.

In case of a tie at the end of a super over, will they go for another super over?

No, another super over will not be played. Instead the winner will be

the team that has scored the most boundaries in the match (main match + super over). If the above is still a tie, the team that has scored the most boundaries in the match (main match only). If still equal, a count-back from the final ball of the one over eliminator shall be conducted. The team with the higher scoring delivery shall be the winner. If a team loses two wickets during its...

Each tournament will have its own playing conditions.

I'm not sure about other tournaments, as per the playing conditions of IPL

The super over will be declared as a tie.

Then, if the match is a league match.

1 point will be given per team

If both the teams have an equal number of points their relative positions shall be determined by the following:

a: the team with the most wins in matches in the League during the season will be placed in the higher position

b: if there are teams with equal points and equal wins during the season, then in such case the team with the higher net run rate will be placed in the higher position

c: if following the net run rate calculation above there are teams which are still equal, then the team with the higher number of wickets taken per balls bowled in the matches played that season in which results were achieved will be placed in the higher position

d: if still equal at the...

Procedure for the Super Over

The following procedure will apply should the provision for any Super Over be adopted in any match.

1. Subject to weather conditions the Super Over will take place on the scheduled day of the match at a time to be determined by the IPL Match Referee. In normal circumstances it shall commence 10 minutes after the conclusion of the match.

2. The amount of extra time allocated to the Super Over is the greater of (a) the extra time allocated to the original match less the amount of extra time actually utilised and (b) the gap between the actual end of the match and the time the original match would have been scheduled to finish had the whole of the extra time provision been utilised. Should play be delayed prior to or during the Super Over, once the playing time lost exceeds the extra time allocated, the Super Over shall be abandoned. See clause 13 below.

3. The Super Over will take place on the pitch allocated for the match (the...

In the event of the teams having scored the same number of runs in the Super Over:

a) If the original match was a tie under the D/L method, clause d. below immediately applies.

b) Otherwise, the team whose batsmen hit the most number of boundaries (fours and sixes) combined from its two innings in the main match and the Super Over shall be the winner.

c) If the total number of boundaries hit by both teams is equal, the team whose batsmen score the most number of boundaries (fours and sixes) in its innings in the main match (ignoring the Super Over) will be the winner.

d. If still equal, a count-back from the final ball of the Super Over shall be conducted. The team with the higher scoring delivery shall be the winner. If a team loses two wickets during its Super Over, then any unbowled deliveries will be counted as dot balls. Note that for this purpose, the runs scored from a delivery is defined as the total team runs scored since the completion of the previous...

A tied Test is a Test cricket match in which the side batting second is bowled out for the second time, with scores level. This is a very rare result; only two ties have occurred in the 2,000 Tests played since 1877. The first was in 1960 and the second in 1986. On both occasions, the aggregate scores of both sides (teams) were equal at the conclusion of play and the side batting last had completed its final innings: 10 batsmen had been dismissed or, from the perspective of the side bowling, 10 wickets had been taken. In other words after four completed innings, with each innings ending either by a declaration or 10 wickets having fallen, the runs for both teams were exactly the same.

In cricket, a tie is distinct from a draw, which occurs when play concludes without victory by either team (except where a Test has been formally abandoned).

Both tied Tests involved the Australian cricket team. Both ended in the last possible over of play on the last day with a ball to...

At root, match play scoring is very simple: Golfers compete hole by hole, and the golfer who wins the most holes wins the match.

But match play competitions can create some scores that novices might not be familiar with, scores that may look odd or use terminology unfamiliar to beginners.

Basics of Match Play Scorekeeping

Simple: Win a hole, that's one for you; lose a hole, that's one for your opponent. Ties on individual holes (called halves) essentially don't count; they aren't kept track of in the scorekeeping.

The score of a match play match is rendered relationally. Here's what we mean: Let's say you've won 5 holes and your opponent has won 4. The score is not shown as 5 to 4; rather, it's rendered as 1-up for you, or 1-down for your opponent. If you have won 6 holes and your opponent 3, then you are leading 3-up, and your opponent is trailing 3-down.

Essentially, match play scoring...

The latest format of cricket, the T20, produces many interesting matches where the results tend to be decided in the final over or even on the final ball. And on some occasions, no result is produced which leads to a TIED condition. A tie in ODI Cricket and Test Cricket remains a tie with no rules to break the tie. But in T20 International Cricket, there have been some tie breakers to decide results in the Tied matches. Cricmatez.com brings you the list of all the Tied T20 Matches that have taken place in International Cricket.

TIE BREAKERS to decide winners in Tied T20 Matches (Both International and Domestic)


Bowl out was the first method used to decide winner in tied T20 matches and was used in the first 3 tied matches, later it was replaced to another method known as the super over or one-over eliminator.

The procedure of Bowl Out is similar to a Penalty Shoot-out in Football. Here, 5 bowlers from each team bowl one ball each on the...

September 29, 2016, marked a cool and damp evening in Pittsburgh. PNC Park was sparsely populated for game No. 159 of the regular season, the final Pirates’ home game of the campaign.

The hosts had little to play for, having been eliminated from postseason contention, failing to make the playoffs after three consecutive trips to the postseason. The visiting Cubs had already secured a playoff spot and the best record in the NL.

I sensed many, including those in the press box, were ready for the season to end. Then the rains came. The tarp was deployed. Western Pa. was soaked by more than an inch of rain.

In the sixth inning of a 1-1 tie, the umpires decided they had see enough regular-season baseball in Pittsburgh in 2016. They sent everyone home with baseball’s first tie game since 2005. I was there as a witness, recounting the events for what turned out to be the last game story I wrote as a beat reporter for the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

The shortest format of cricket has been one of the most amazing formats as well. It’s short, it’s fast, it’s intriguing, and it’s entertaining. Taking the T20 format further is the IPL which has taken this game to a whole new level. Cricket and talent can be seen at its best in IPL.

This format of the game is so involving and competitive that you cannot afford to relax even for a single delivery. The game changes every over and the teams that has played well for more over’s is the one that comes out on top. But there are instances when both teams end up with equal scores at the end of twenty over’s. Which takes the game further to super over, which is even more exciting as all you got is 6 deliveries and 2 wickets to make it count.

Yesterday’s match between Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab was no different, as IPL witnessed 6th super over in its 8th season. Some good striking by Shaun Marsh and intelligent bowling by Johnson took Punjab through and gave the fans a...

With the knockout stages of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 set to begin next week, we have a look at the some of the important rules that will govern proceedings.

No Super Overs for quarter-finals and semi-finals

Over the last few years, we have seen a lot of tied T20 matches being decided by a ‘Super Over’ which sees one bowler bowling an over at three batsmen from the opposition team with the batting side having two wickets to play with. If the match is still tied after the Super Over, the team that has hit the most boundaries wins.

But it has been decided by the ICC that there will be no Super Overs for the quarter-finals and semi-finals of the ongoing World Cup. Rather, the team that finished in a higher position during the group stages will go through to the next round.

Abandoned Matches

The same will apply to matches which get abandoned due to rain. There are reserve days for knockout matches but in case both teams do not bat for 20...

My friend Joey is one of my best friends. However we’re both geeks by nature and many women will agree we don’t have any taste for clothes. Or at least not a good taste according to them. But yeah what’s a good taste?

Why he needed to look so fine? Because Joey was getting married. And as we all know at your wedding you should look at your best.

Where did they meet

My friend Joey was getting married to Kimberly. A fine woman who really uderstands him which is very important. To be honest Joey talks more about bits and bytes than about things that most people talk. Informatics and technology are his life (just as is the case with me) and there’s nothing to do about it. But Kimberly succeeds in talking in his language. Maybe it’s do to the fact she has a small online background and grew up with 2 brothers who like 2 play a lot of games. Fact is that they are a perfect match.

They met actually at an event for geeks: a board game event. Well it was...

Answering your main question:

Why some of matches remains tie and some goes to superover?

The decision of keeping the match tie or go for tie breaker like Super Over depends on a particular series. Mostly, tie breaker is used in the series between more than two countries like any ICC world events, continent tournaments like Asia cup etc.

Regarding your other question (which is already answered by @Sports Fan):

The decision of which type of tie breaker (Bowl out or Super over etc.) should be taken also depends on the series.

Edit: (As suggested by @Sports Fan)

ICC announce such playing conditions before the tournament is started. See this report in...

To draw or tie is to finish a competition with identical or inconclusive results. Draw is usually used in the United Kingdom, Ireland and the Commonwealth of Nations (except in Canada) and it is usually used for sports such as association football and Australian rules football. In cricket, a draw and a tie are two different things.

Ties or draws are possible in some, but not all, sports and games. Such an outcome, sometimes referred to as deadlock, can occur in politics, business, and wherever there are different factions regarding an issue.

Resolving ties or draws[edit]

In instances where a winner must be determined, several methods are commonly used. Across various sports:

Some other measure may be used, such as aggregate point difference. A game may continue on in extra time. To ensure a quick result, some form of sudden death rule may apply. In some sports, a penalty shootout or bowl-out may occur. A rematch may occur at a later date, especially if...

Tie Break


In games and sports, a tiebreaker or tiebreak is used to determine a winner from among players or teams that are tied at the end of a contest, or a set of contests.

General operation[edit]

In matches[edit]

In some situations, the tiebreaker may consist of another round of play. For example, if contestants are tied at the end of a quiz game, they each might be asked one or more extra questions, and whoever correctly answers the most from that extra set is the winner. In many sports, teams that are tied at the end of a match compete in an additional period of play called "overtime" or "extra time". The extra round may also not follow the regular format, e.g. a tiebreak in tennis or a penalty shootout in association football.

In tournaments and playoffs[edit]

In some sports, tournaments, and playoffs, the tiebreaker is a statistic that is compared to separate...

In tennis, there are games, sets and matches. To win a game, a you must score four points and have a two point lead. To win a set, you must win seven games and have a two game lead. To win the match, you must win the best of three sets or the best of five sets depending on where you’re playing.[1] In tennis, there are no ties. When both sides are tied at six games a piece, a tiebreaker game will take place to decide the winner of a set.

World Cup fever has taken over your local bar and office water cooler and you still have questions about what's going on.

You're not alone.

For many American sports fans -- some who are new to the game -- soccer continues to be confusing. Although soccer does not have a lot of rules, it does differ greatly from other sports Americans are used to watching on TV each week.

Indeed, many of you have questions. Luckily, we've supplied the answers.

Why are ties decided by penalty kicks?

A penalty shootout is used when teams remain tied after 90 minutes of regulation and 30 minutes (two 15-minute halves) of overtime. There is no sudden-death in soccer. The entire 30 minutes of extra time is played regardless. If there is no winner after 120 minutes, then each team gets five penalty kicks. If it remains tied, each team kicks until...

A Radical Solution Final Thoughts

Dear ChessBase readers, dear chess fans,

I really must beg for your indulgence. When I wrote my original article, “A Radical Solution,” it was a knee-jerk rant of sorts. Reeling from the “thirty-five-minute punch,” of Game 12 in the World Championship Match (WCM) was simply too much of a disappointment for me to bear. With the whole world tuning in to watch a dramatic final game of a competitive sporting duel we witnessed instead a dud masquerading as a classical game, leaving me greatly annoyed. The players can’t be faulted - it was the match rules that were to blame.

Okay, one rant is fine, a second is pushing the boundary of fine etiquette and a third is well-and-truly over the top. Agreed. Hence my request for your kind indulgence as I genuinely find the issue to be far too important to pass over as things currently stand. Let’s get started.

Firstly, a very big thank you to both GM Emil Sutovsky and...
