hi friends.seems we now have 2 options to decide the winner incase of a tie in T 20 matches but which is the best for cricket and people,super over or bowlout? very tough call for me because the 2 super overs alone took over 25 minutes to bowl and thats a long time for just 2 overs in a fast cricket match whereas in bowlout its only the bowler and no batsmen or fielder and its like puttung the pressure only on captains.which is better according to you?

i think super over is a bit better than bowlout.bowlout is a bit of gamble but super over gives something for each team.but team with better heater has got a better chance of winning.

yeah agreed but every team needs a quick bowler with some kinda slingng or awkward action for these super overs.the quicker he is,the better it is for the bowling team

super over for sure because it is more cricketing involves everyone as you say, in football you have penalty shots as a part of the game so they use it as tiebreaker. So its only fair to everyone that all parts of cricket are use to break a tie

i think super over is a better choice. i dont care if it takes a bit longer but bowl out seemed pretty pointless and not cricket-like.
