The International Cricket Council (ICC) has reinstated the use of super over in case there is a tie in the finals of the ICC World Cup 2015. This now replicates the arrangements of the ICC World Cup 2011 finals and other ICC events where the winner will be decided on the day of the final itself (if there is not a washout). 

In a statement released by ICC following its January 28 board meeting, the ICC said: 

“The ICC Board reinstated the use of a Super Over in the event of a tie in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 final.

“This now replicates the arrangements for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 final and other recent ICC events where a winner will be determined on the day of the final (weather permitting), and a Super Over was the most credible way to separate the two sides.”

If there is a tie in the quarter or semi-finals, then the higher placed team will progress to the next stage. 

Earlier, ICC had also said that the match officials will have their full backing to punish any player if they find him breaching the code of conduct during the event. (Read Here)
