Lizelle Lee argues that Super Overs should be scrapped from ODIS

South Africa batter Lizelle Lee has made a case for the Super Over to be removed from ODIs. Her argument comes after South African women lost to West Indies in a tied game after the latter won in the Super Over after the scores got tied. The number one batter in the Women’s ODI rankings made her case citing that after playing fifty overs, it doesn’t make sense to decide the game after just a solitary over. 

It's definitely something that shouldn't be in an ODI. You can't just have six balls, 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 longer 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.
