13Scaled Duckworth- Lewis (DL) Resource Table for Twenty20 cricket
14Team A scores 150/8 for 20 overs. Rain interrupts the game and the match is reduced to 12 overs for Team B.Team B target is:According to the D-L method :[( 150 * )] +1 = ~ 100According to Run Rate method :[ (150/20) * 12 ] + 1 = 91
15Two resources at disposal of scoring side : Number of overs leftWickets left.Mathematical relation between overs left and wickets left is :whereaverage total score in u overs in an unlimited overs match where w wickets are lost.asymptotic average total score from the last (10 – w) wickets in unlimited overs.exponential decay constant .for w = 0, 1, , 9.
16Is it the best curve to fit? Why a formula of unlimited overs was used for a limited overs game?The last two columns have some identical entries. Is it plausible ?
