New Zealand has been involved in eight super overs, with the most dramatic one against England in 2019 World Cup finals, which had to be finally decided on the basis of boundary count.

Ross Taylor, who was part of the all-important finals in 2019, does not have a problem with a tie in the one-day game and backs a joint winner.

“I’m still undecided in a Super Over in a one-day game, I think one-day cricket is played over such a long time that I have no problems in a tie being a tie,” the New Zealander said in a conversation with Cricingif.

Post the 2019 World Cup finals, the ICC replaced the boundary count rule with additional super overs if a match is undecided in after a super over.

However, Ross Taylor backs joint winners if a game remains undecided after 100 Overs

“In T20, to continually go on is the right way to go.

A bit like football or some other games, trying to get that win in, but I don’t think the Super Over is necessarily needed in a one-day game. I think you can have a joint winner,” he further added.

A tie not a bad thing

Recalling the World Cup finals, where he didn’t even know there was a Super Over, the leading run-scorer for New Zealand said according to him a tie is a not a bad thing.

“During the World Cup I actually went up to the umpires to say ‘good game’, I didn’t even know there was a Super Over.

A tie is a tie, I suppose you could have this argument either way, but in a one-day game I think if you can go 100 overs and still have someone equal at the end I don’t think a tie is a bad thing.”

Ross Taylor, who has expressed his desire to play till the 2023 one-day World Cup in India, said, “one over across 50 overs or 20 overs is tough to swallow, but if we are in that same situation we still back ourselves.”

“First and foremost you have to try and win the game in the allocated time.

We haven’t been able to be ruthless enough there, and if we can do that and not even let it get into a Super Over then hopefully the right results comes,” added Taylor, the recipient of Sir Richard Hadlee Medal as New Zealand’s player of the year for 2019-2020.

New Zealand have been involved in 3 super overs in T20Is against England and India since 2019 World Cup finals. But have ended up on the losing side in all of them.
