ICC cricket committee meeting – Tied women’s ODIs to be decided by Super Over


In another change to the playing conditions, the discretionary batting powerplay has been scrapped

Less than a year out of the 2022 Women’s ODI World Cup in New Zealand, the ICC has announced that all tied matches will be decided by a Super Over. In another change to the playing conditions, the five-over powerplay that was previously taken at the discretion of either batters in the middle has been scrapped.

Meanwhile, the inaugural Under-19 women’s World Cup that was due to be staged in Bangladesh later this year has been postponed to January 2023.

“Covid-19 has had a significant impact on the establishment and subsequent development of the U19 programmes in many countries and teams would not be able prepare appropriately for a global event later this year,” the ICC stated in a release. Likewise, the global qualifier for the 2022 Women’s World Cup, will also be postponed and will now be held in December 2021.
