When both teams involved in a one day international cricket match have their full allocation of overs, the team scoring the most runs is the winner. There is, however, a regrettable tendency for the weather to intervene — especially in England, as the World Cup teams have been finding out — and to deprive one or both teams of a portion of their allotted time. The solution, as it turned out, lay in statistics.

Please sign in to leave a comment. The Duckworth—Lewis—Stern method DLS is a mathematical formulation designed to calculate the target score for the team batting second in a limited overs cricket match interrupted by weather or other circumstances. It is generally accepted to be the most accurate method of setting a target score.

When overs are lost, setting an adjusted target for the team batting second is not as simple as reducing the run target proportionally to the loss in overs, because a team with ten wickets in hand and 25 overs to bat can play more aggressively than if they had ten wickets and a full 50 overs, for example, and can consequently achieve a higher run rate.

The DLS method is an attempt to set a statistically fair target for the second team's innings, which is the same difficulty as the original target. The basic principle is that each team in a limited-overs match has two resources available with which to score runs overs to play and wickets remaining , and the target is adjusted proportionally to the change in the combination of these two resources.

What is the difference between Par Score and Target Score? Par score is the total that a chasing team should have reached - when they are 'X' wickets down - at the time of an interruption while target score is the revised score that a team is required to get after an interruption.

The target is one fixed number, while the par score changes according to the number of wickets lost. During the innings break, rain interrupts play, and the match is reduced to 21 overs. The 2 nd innings commences, with Australia requiring for victory. Select Duckworth Lewis 3. Select: The type of break i. When a suspension period has occurred i. Continue scoring.

An explanation of the basic principles behind how targets and par scores in rain-affected games are decided As the innings progresses, these resources keep depleting, and eventually reaches zero when a team either plays out all deliveries, or loses all 10 wickets. When, due to any reason, the batting team loses overs, they are denied the opportunity to make full use of their resources. Targets are hence revised in a way that is proportional to the amount of resources available to each team.

## Using Duckworth Lewis Calculation (during match)

It is generally accepted to be the most accurate method of setting a target score. The basic principle is that each team in a limited-overs match has two resources available with which to score runs: wickets remaining, and overs to play. Where overs are lost, setting an adjusted target for the team batting second is not as simple as reducing the run target proportionally to the loss in overs, because a team with ten wickets in hand and 25 overs to bat can be expected to play more aggressively than if they had ten wickets and a full 50 overs, for example, and can consequently achieve a higher run rate. The Duckworth—Lewis method is an attempt to set a statistically fair target for the second team's innings, based on the score achieved by the first team, taking their wickets lost and overs played into account. If, as usually occurs, this 'par score' is a non- integer number of runs, then Team 2's target to win is this number rounded up to the next integer, and the score to tie also called the par score , is this number rounded down to the preceding integer. The actual resource values used in the Professional Edition are not publicly available, [3] so a computer must be used which has the software loaded. In the 4th India — England ODI in the series, the first innings was interrupted by rain on two occasions, resulting in the match being reduced to 22 overs each.
