T-20 hits back with SuperOvers

T20 resumed its evolution with the new rule SuperOver. Ideally the rule says that each team picks 3 batsmen and one bowler. And each team gets to bat for one over bowled by the opposing team’s bowler. And they have 2 wickets or 6 balls till the end of their innings. If they are tied at the end of SuperOvers, then the team losing lesser wickets wins. If that is same then the team hitting more 6s wins. And even if that is same, then the team hitting more 4s wins!! (Phew)

Today’s Match:
West Indies-New Zealand

New Zealand: 155/7
(Taylor 63, Styris 21, Gayle 2 for 16)
West Indies: 155/8
(Chris Gayle 67, Marshall 28, Vettori 3 for 16, Patel 2 for 34)
