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.
