PAK vs IND DLS Par Score

Earlier, Pakistan captain Babar Azam opened on losing the toss where they were forced to bowl first while they were planned to bat first. On the other hand, Shreyas Iyer expressed his feelings about playing for India in Asia Cup 2023.

After winning the toss, the Indian skipper decides to bat first. Unable to withstand the Pakistan bowler’s aggressive bowling attack, the Indian top order collapsed for just 66 runs.

After losing 4 wickets for 66, Ishan Kishan and Hardik made a crucial partnership and led India to score beyond the 200 runs mark. Haris Rauf broke the partnership by dismissing Kishan for 82 runs while Shaheen Afridi dismissed Hardik Pandya while India scored 239 runs. At the end of 48.5 overs, India scored 266 runs and lost all their wickets.

Following the 1st inning while everyone expected a fierce bowling attack from the Indian cricket team, unexpectedly RAIN intervened and delayed the play. Bumrah who recovered from a long last injury is expected to throw his full effort to bag his team a much-needed victory.

As everyone knows rain can not stop a match completely but it can reduce some overs and bring out a play to decide the winner of the game. The organiser will use the DLS method to calculate the overs and runs to reduce which follows some simple calculations which we listed below a simple example.

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.
