And penalty shoots aren't the best part of soccer. They're the worst part of football.

I'd be seriously pissed off if the WC was decided by a bowl out. I can't imagine a worse thing for cricket. Penalty shoot outs are awful in football, but they're a necessary evil of sorts, and at least they test a genuinely relevant skill in the game. Players actually have to take and defend penalties in football, they don't have to bowl at stumps without a batsman in cricket, and to decide matches via that is a joke. They may as well arm wrestle. Obviously most people realise this already, but if that's actually part of the rules, someone somewhere must think it's a good idea, and that just blows my mind.
I know a place where a royal flush
Can never beat a pair
I refuse to believe, no matter what Wikipedia says, that by some instance of a tie, the ICC would have the balls in ending what they believe to be cricket's biggest stage in a bowl-off. I simply cannot fathom this occurring.
But then again, considering the likelihood of a tie, is it ever likely to come into force?

Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
Its amazing that the difference between those who say tie and those who say Sri Lanka is just 2. Considering that less than 1% of all ODI's have been tied (22 out of 2580) what does this tell us of Sri Lanka's chances ??
..... or of the seriousness of those voting for a tie , undersigned included
What about cricket overtime on the event of a tie?
An extra 5 overs. Each main bowler gets one over. With only a certain amount of wickets in hand, like 2? That could be fun, I could see how it could into a slog fest but with wickets more valuable you never know.
Nah better if you had to send in your number 11 to face two overs. Whichever number 11 scored more runs in those two overs wins.
McGrath vs. Murali in a batting contest would be awesome.
We will, I reckon.
C'mon Macca. Go out in a bullying blaze of glory!
C'mon Sri Lanka --- hand Mcgrath a defeat in his last game.
