Super over will continue in case of tie
During the T20 World Cup, if there is a tie in the league round, then there will be a super over. If the super over remains even, then the super over will continue until the result is out. Even after this, if the result is not able to come out due to weather, then both the teams will be given equal points. If this happens in the semi-finals, the highest ranked team in the Super-12 will be the winner. But this will not happen in the final. If the match is not completed in the final, both the teams will be declared joint winners.
