A Super Over, also called an Eliminator or an “Oopse” (One Over Per Side Eliminator), is a tie-breaking method used in limited-overs cricket matches, mainly in T20 matches.
If a game ends in a tie, each team nominates three batsmen and a bowler for the Super Overs. The two teams come back to the crease. For one over (six balls), the first team is bowling and fielding, while the second team bats. Then, the second team bowls an over, and the first team bats. The team that scores the most runs is awarded the match. Wickets can be taken as normal – a team’s Super Over ends if it loses two wickets.
If the scores in the Super Over are tied, the match is won by the team that has scored the most sixes in their innings.
