This paper outlines an alternative method of determining the winner of a tied One-Day International cricket match to the boundary count rule invoked during the 2019 World Cup between England and New Zealand.

This contrast is reflected in a different figure known as a Performance Index. Combining the Performance Indices for the two disciplines gives the Team Performance Index, by which a winner can be decided.
