One Over Per Side Eliminator (OOPSE)

The following procedure will apply should the provision for a one over per side eliminator be adopted in a T20 match

The one over per side eliminator will take place on the scheduled day of the match at a time to be determined by the Match Referee. In normal circumstances it shall commence 10 minutes after the conclusion of the match. The amount of extra time allocated to the Oopse is the greater of (a) the extra time allocated to the original match less the amount of extra time actually utilised and (b) the gap between the actual end of the match and the time the original match would have been scheduled to finish had the whole of the extra time provision been utilised. Should play be delayed prior to or during the Oopse, once the playing time lost exceeds the extra time allocated, the Oopse shall be abandoned.
The OOPSE will take place on the pitch allocated for the match unless otherwise determined by the umpires in consultation with the ground authority and the Match Referee

Prior to the commencement of the OOPSE each team elects three batsmen and one bowler and Match Referee shall not disclose the names of the nominated players to any other person until both teams have submitted their respective nominees

The umpires shall stand at the same end as that in which they finished the match they shall choose which end to bowl and both teams will bowl from the same end and each team's over is played with the same fielding restrictions as apply for the last over in a normal T20 International match
The team batting second in the match will bat first in the one over eliminator and the same ball (or a ball of a similar age if the original ball is out of shape or lost) as used at the end of the team's innings shall be used for the "extra" over
The loss of two wickets in the over ends the team's one over innings
In the event of the teams having the same score after the one over per side eliminator has been completed, if the original match was a tie under the D/L method, clause 14 immediately applies. Otherwise, the team whose batsmen hit the most number of boundaries combined from its two innings in both the main match and the OOPSE shall be the winner
If the number of boundaries hit by both teams is equal, the team whose batsmen scored more boundaries during its innings in the main match (ignoring the OOPSE) shall be the winner
If still equal, a count-back from the final ball of the one over eliminator shall be conducted. The team with the higher scoring delivery shall be the winner.
If a team loses two wickets during its over, then any unbowled deliveries will be counted as dot balls. Note that for this purpose, the runs scored from a delivery is defined as the total team runs scored since the completion of the previous legitimate ball, i.e including any runs resulting from wides, no ball or penalty runs.
