The International Cricket Council (ICC) have announced that a Super Over will determine the winner of the World Cup if the final ends as a tie.
The ICC also revealed that all captains will have clean slates in regards to over-rate offences.
“They [captains] will only be suspended from playing in an ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 match if over-rate offences are committed during the event,” the ICC said. “Any over-rate ‘strikes’ incurred prior to the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 will be carried forward to the first bilateral series after the event.”
The governing body was also glad to announce that there were no drug violations in 2014.
“Of the 1,210 drug tests conducted across domestic and international cricket in the year 2014, none resulted in any violation,” the ICC said. “While two violations were reported in 2014, these resulted from domestic tests conducted in late 2013.”
