Cricketer Sachin Tendulkar believes that there should have been another Super Over to decide the Final

The winner of World Cup final was decided after the match was tied even in the super over and England won the title on the basis of most number of boundaries.

Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar said on Tuesday that the final should have been decided with another super over if it was tied after the first super over. The winner of World Cup final was decided after the match was tied even in the super over and England won the title on the basis of most number of boundaries.

In an interview with 100MBSports, Tendulkar said, “I feel there should be another super over to decide the winner, instead of considering the number of boundaries scored by both teams. Not just in a World Cup final. Every game is important. Like in football, when teams go into extra time, nothing else matters.”

Tendulkar also talked about the importance of an even contest between bat and ball in ODIs and how fans like more low scoring games. New Zealand defended a low score of 239 against India in the semi-final and almost defended 241 against England in the finals.

“I think the fans enjoy seeing a total of 240 on the board a lot more than 325. In a high-scoring match, the batsmen usually dominate, and the bowlers are constantly looking for cover. But in low-scoring games, the batsmen must apply and stay there to get those crucial runs against bowlers who are running in with their tails up. In fact, some of the batsmen did stay there and got more runs. This pattern of batsmen being made to work hard by the bowlers has been a welcome change in this tournament,” said Tendulkar.

The World Cup is over and many former players and experts are suggesting to change the rules for the Finals at least.
