South Africa and Australia are taking on each other in the second semi-final of the ongoing ODI World Cup 2023. The Aussies managed to bundle out South Africa on a low total of 212 runs in 49.4 overs. Star Proteas middle-order batter David Miller scored a well-fought and all-important century for South Africa, scoring 101 runs off 116 balls, with 8 fours and 5 sixes.

While chasing the target of 213 runs, the Aussies have also lost 3 wickets at the score of 106 runs in 14.1 overs as Keshav Maharaj just dismissed Travis Head at the time of filling this copy on his spell’s first ball. South Africa seem to be on the way to a comeback in the match, which also transliterates the fact that the match might end up as a low-scoring thriller with some brilliant bowling performances while defending a total of 212 runs.

With said that, here we’ll have a look at all the rules of super-over and extra-time if this ongoing second semi-final between the Proteas and the Aussies ends in a tie.
