IND vs NEP DLS Par Score and Rules

IND vs NEP DLS Par Score and Rules: In their first match against Pakistan, the Indian cricket team batted and failed to bowl after the rain interrupted the match and forced them to end the game. The same repeats in their second game against Nepal. This time, India completed their bowling inning while rain interrupted their batting.

India who decided to bowl first made a sloppy start in their first bowling inning in the Asia Cup 2023 tournament by dropping 3 catches within 5 overs. India’s first match of the tournament ended with no result after rain interrupted the match against Pakistan.

With many expectations floating around regarding the Indian bowling attack in the Asia Cup, Bumrah skips the match against Nepal and will rejoin the team for the Super 4 round.

In the absence of Bumrah, the Board decided to include Mohammed Shami in the playing 11 for the match against Nepal.

Nepal executed a decent batting where the team scored 230 runs after losing all their 10 wickets in 48.2 overs. Nepal opening batter Kushal Bhurtel grabs the attention of many after smashing the Siraj’s delivery out of the stadium.

Here we have listed the possible DLS scenario if the rain continues to pour in the stadium.

How DLS is Calculated?

To calculate a target, the formula may simply be expressed as:

Team 2’s par score = Team 1’s score x (Team 2’s resources/Team 1’s resources).

During the match after the interruption, there are only two factors remain with the team for the calculation of this method.

Every team available with these two resources namely:

  • Remaining Overs
  • Remaining Wickets

On the basis of these two resources, Frank Duckworth and Tony Lewis have prepared a chart which suggests that how many resources are left with the batting side in different situations.
