One of the most distraught people after the 2019 World Cup final, Ross Taylor has now opened up on the loss to England in the grand finale. Ross Taylor has said that a super over shouldn’t exist in the ODI setup if a game ends in a tie and the trophy must be shared between the two teams if this takes place in the final of the tournament.
The 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup final became the most enthralling world cup final that the cricketing world has ever witnessed. England emerged as the champions for the first time in the tournament at Lord’s beating New Zealand in the final by way of scoring more boundaries in the game. It was an astonishing final as the teams weren’t separated after the stipulated overs and even after the super over.
Now, one of New Zealand’s most veteran players, Ross Taylor has opined on the decision that led to New Zealand’s loss in the consecutive world cup finals.

“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,” Taylor told ESPNCricinfo.
“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.”
I Didn’t Even Know There Was A Super Over: Ross Taylor
“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 further 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,” Taylor added.
