The 2015 World Cup final will be decided by a Twenty20-style Super Over in the event of a draw, the International Cricket Council (ICC) announced.
It means a return to the 2011 World Cup final playing conditions, with the ICC backtracking on a proposal to have joint winners.
“The ICC Board reinstated the use of a super over in the event of a tie in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 final,” an ICC release said.
“This now replicates the arrangements for the World Cup 2011 final and other recent ICC events where a winner will be determined on the day of the final (weather permitting), and a super over was the most credible way to separate the two sides.”
The ICC said that the Super Over – which involves both sides facing one over of six balls – was the fairest way to decide the winner.
The Cricket World Cup begins on February 14, with the final scheduled for March 29 at the MCG.
