Reportedly sachin was the first to recommend it and cricket legend sachin tendulkar on Wednesday welcomed the ICC's decision to stop boundary count as a way of deciding knockout games in its global tournaments like the World Cup. Meanwhile the International cricket Council on Monday changed the Super Over rule for all its major tournaments following the uproar over the outcome of the men’s World Cup final in July when england were declared winners against new zealand on boundary count.
Furthermore after the board meetings in Dubai, the ICC decided that in semi-finals and finals of future global tournaments, if the teams score the same number of runs in their Super Over’s, the process will be repeated until one side wins. Tendulkar tweeted in favor of the move “I felt this was important as it is a fair way to obtain a result when nothing else separates the 2 teams”.
Moreover many former players and fans criticized the rule after the nerve-wracking final, prompting the game’s governing body to rethink. Apparently Tendulkar also congratulated his former teammate Sourav Ganguly, who is to be appointed as next BCCI president. The batting great wrote on the micro blogging site “Congrats on being elected the @BCCI President, Dadi. I am sure you will continue to serve Indian cricket like you always have! Best wishes to the new team that will take charge”.
