Here’s How Much Target Pakistan Has to Chase If Over Reduces by DLS Method

The DLS method comes into play when a limited-overs cricket match is disrupted by factors like rain. It’s used to calculate a new target score for the team batting second, considering the change in available overs and wickets. It’s not just about reducing the run target proportionally with lost overs because a team with more wickets in hand and fewer overs may play more aggressively, aiming for a higher run rate.

In the Group A match of the Asia Cup between Pakistan and India in Kandy, Pakistan was tasked with chasing a target set by Rohit Sharma’s team, which was 267 runs in 50 overs. Unfortunately, rain disrupted the game, and the second innings couldn’t even start. Now, the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern (DLS) method will come into play to determine Pakistan’s potential target if the overs are reduced due to rain interruptions.

If overs are reduced, Pakistan’s target will be:

254 if 45 overs

239 if 40 overs

203 if 30 overs

155 if 20 overs

Here is what Pakistan’s goal to chase if overs are decreased using the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern (DLS) technique.
