‘Super Over is something that shouldn’t be in an ODI’: Lizelle Lee: South Africa’s female opener says that super rounds can only be used to decide T20. Meanwhile, according to South African opening batsman Lizelle Lee, the Super Round should not be used to determine ODI. So, Lee said that 12 goals are not enough to determine a 600 game. But they are enough for the T20 playoffs.
“It’s definitely something that shouldn’t be in an ODI,” Lee said. “You can’t just have six balls (on each side); that’s not going to define what’s happened in an ODI. I totally disagree with it. I don’t think it should have happened. T20 is something where it can happen because, on the day, anything can happen. With T20s, if you play a bad game you lose, if you play a good game, you win. ODIs are more about skill, you have to adapt to the conditions. It’s long periods of batting and longer periods of bowling. I don’t think ODIs should have a Super Over. I totally disagree with it but it happened and it is what it is.” She also added.

The Super Over between West Indies and South Africa ranked. First, in the women’s ODI and third in the overall standings. The only other two games before were the 2019 Men’s World Cup finals. In addition, and the ODI between Pakistan and Zimbabwe in November 2020. The rarity of the super round meant that the South African women’s team was not fully prepared after a 50-round tie. The spokesperson confirmed that some on-site consultations has been conducting before the super end.
“The team manager and officials just checked the tour MOU (Memorandum of Understanding). The manager explains to the players that it was something that was agreed upon before the start of the series,” Koketso Gaofetoge said.
“That’s the sort of thing that is going to get you sometimes because there’s no third umpire or anything like that, ” Lee said.
“There are a few players that thought Mignon might be in but you can’t sit on the sidelines and think it’s in or out so that’s just something you have to deal with. At the end of the day, we won 4-1, so we are very happy with the result.” She said.
However, It was submit by an Onfield referee and the lack of a TV. The referee meant that South Africa could not question this decision. That is to say, the repetition shows that this is too tight for Lee.
