The International Cricket Council on Monday tweaked the super over rule for all its major events following the uproar over the outcome of the men's World Cup final in July when England were declared winners against New Zealand on boundary count. 
New Zealand and England had headed into the super over after scores in the World Cup final were tied at 241. 
 
Once the super over also ended in a tie with both teams making 15, the winner was decided on account of superior boundary count. 
 
Following that nerve-wracking final, the ICC faced the wrath of fans and former players over the controversial rule. 
 
Now it has finally made changes to the rule and in case a situation arises where both teams are tied even after the super over in a final or semifinal, the super over will be repeated until there is a clear winner.
