Senior New Zealand batsman Ross Taylor wouldn’t thoughts groups sharing the 50-over World Cup trophy within the uncommon case of a tie as he strongly believes that Tremendous Over isn’t vital within the One-day format.
The Worldwide Cricket Council (ICC) had attracted a barrage of criticism after England had been declared winners within the World Cup last towards New Zealand on boundary countback after the tie in regulation interval and subsequent Tremendous Over.
That pressured the ICC to tweak the rule which is able to enable repeated Tremendous Overs within the semifinals and last till the winner is determined. Nonetheless, Taylor sees a number of advantage in sharing the trophy if the sport is tied.
“I’m nonetheless undecided in a Tremendous Over in a one-day sport, I feel one-day cricket is performed over such a very long time that I’ve no issues in a tie being a tie,” Taylor informed ESPNCricinfo.
“In T20, to repeatedly go on is the appropriate solution to go. A bit like soccer or another video games, making an attempt to get that win in, however I don’t assume the Tremendous Over is essentially wanted in a one-day sport. I feel you possibly can have a joint winner.”
Contemplating the size of the one-day sport, Taylor feels tie is a good end result.
“In the course of the World Cup I truly went as much as the umpires to say ‘good sport’, I didn’t even know there was a Tremendous Over. A tie is a tie, I suppose you could possibly have this argument both method, however in a one-day sport I feel in case you can go 100 overs and nonetheless have somebody equal on the finish I don’t assume a tie is a nasty factor.”
New Zealand aren’t precisely Tremendous Over specialists, having misplaced seven out of eight throughout codecs.
“One over throughout 50 overs or 20 overs is hard to swallow, but when we’re in that very same state of affairs we nonetheless again ourselves. Before everything you must attempt to win the sport within the allotted time.
“We haven’t been capable of be ruthless sufficient there, and if we will try this and never even let it get right into a Tremendous Over then hopefully the appropriate outcomes comes,” Taylor added.
