ICC also announced the dates for the event, stating that the event will be held from March 11 to April 3 in 2016. Super-Over to decide Champion, in event of a tie If suppose the final match is tied then a super-over would decide the outcome of the match. This was agreed upon unanimously in the meeting by the members. ICC stated that a super-over contest was the most credible way of picking out a winner in case of a tie. New system for offences relating to slow over-rates ICC decided that team Captains' minor "over-rate" offences prior to the World Cup event would not be carried into the event and fresh over-rate offences would begin with the event and end with it. Also, the over-rate offences held prior to the event will be carried forward to the first bilateral series after the event.

The board also approved the dates for the 2017 Champions Trophy in England and stated that it will be held between June 1 and 19.
