Over to Super Over Cricket!

Cricket lovers get into frenzy as more and more fours and sixes are hit. Cricket traders aim at delivering the maximum packages of fours and sixes to maximize their revenues. Thanks to IPL-2 the super over rule is full of exciting possibilities. Just think of the scenario. Every team is given one over to set a target for the opposite team. This can be called a super over. The team, always stocked with 11 players whatever the overs given, will go all out to hit maximum number of fours and sixes in those six balls barring no balls and wide balls. With six balls the target can be as high as 36. The opposite team will again go desperate to attain that target. Benefits are astounding. A whole championship can be played in just one day saving precious time and optimizing money spent or earned. Super ads can be fitted in between every ball—at least five slots for each innings of one super over. Even test matches are possible in this format. Four innings of one super over each. An ideal day
