    Super overs or ties?

    I personally don't like the use of super overs in round robin games. Why can't they be saved for knock out matches and points shared for ties in group matches? It is like having a penalty shootout every time there is a draw in soccer/football.

    Yeah I agree. Not a terrible method for knockout games where you absolutely need a result, but there's nothing wrong with having a tie in the group stages.

    T20s are there only for the entertainment factor, so yes, super over is a pretty good option.
