If the 7th wicket falls in the first half, the team forfeits the remaining balls in that half, and the last batter resumes the innings in the second half says the official rules of the game,” the rules state.
“Most runs wins Gold, second Silver, and third Bronze. If two teams tie with most runs, super overs decide Gold; if all three teams tie, all get Gold, and, in a tie for second, Silver is shared,” it adds.
