The decision of the World Cup winner should be from another super over
Sachin Tendulkar said that the decision of the World Cup winner should be done by doing a super-hit rather than counting the boundaries. He said such a condition was not seen before in any World Cup final match. He said – I feel that the decision of the World Cup winner should be done by doing another super over. He said that it should be done not only in the World Cup finals but also in other matches if there is such a situation.
