A bowl-out (sometimes termed a bowl-off) is used in various forms of limited overs cricket to decide a match that ends in a tie. ... Five bowlers from each side deliver one or two balls each at an unguarded wicket (three stumps).

Bowl Out resorted [ When the result of the match is a tie ]

The bowl-out is a new football style concept. This is applicable whenever the match ends in a tie (scores level). In this case, five bowlers from each of side bowl in turns at the stumps; whoever hits the stumps (bowled) gets one point. The team getting the most points is declared the winner. The first bowl out in the history of T-20 cricket happened in the First T-20 World cup in South Africa in the match between India and Pakistan. India won the bowl out by a margin of 3-0. Bowl-out is not used in the 50 overs version of the game or in test cricket. If scores are level, the match will be called as a tie.
