Calculating D/L Through the MyCricket Live Score App In The Home Page.
This is particularly useful for way for non-scorers (i.e. captains or team managers) to identify the PAR score following each over, ball and wicket.
1. To calculate D/L, the scorer can access this by selecting ‘Continue without Logging In’ then D/L Calculator
2. In the D/L Calculator, ensure that;
- Overs per innings before any rain delay is added (i.e. 50, 40 or 20 Overs) then;
- Select Suspension Periods and add in match data for ‘After Over’, ‘Runs’, ‘Wickets Lost’ and Overs Remaining after Suspension then;
- Click ‘Done’
As per the Example: if 1.3 overs have been bowled before play is interrupted and the match is reduced to 13 overs per side, 11.3 overs remain in the innings.
3. Once the first innings is complete;
- Add in the runs scored by the team batting first. Note that the overs per innings will change automatically when ‘After Over’ and ‘Overs Remaining After Suspension’ is entered in the previous step.
- Once completed, select ‘2nd Innings’
4. If there are any other rain delays/breaks during the match, add in suspension period as per Step 2.
As per the Example: During the innings break, rain has interrupted play and the match is reduced to 10 overs per side. Use the D/L calculator to add in another suspension period and amend ‘Overs Remaining After Suspension’ to 10 overs.
5. The target score is then automatically recalculated as per the adjusted suspension periods. As the match progresses, the PAR score will change with every ball bowled and wicket taken entered in the ‘overs’ and ‘wickets’ column (see below).
As per the Example:
When the match is reduced to 10 overs, the target score is 105. As the match progresses, the PAR score updates after each ball bowled and wicket taken.
After 6.3 overs, if the team has lost 4 wickets, the PAR score would be 66.
After 6.5 overs, if the team loses another wicket (to 5 wickets lost), the PAR score would once again be adjusted to 70.
