Updated version of Duckworth-Lewis method to come into effect from today

The ICC has announced to update its rules for its Code of Conduct and ‘Duckworth-Lewis method’, which decides the winner and loser in the rain-affected match, will come into effect from September 30. The new version of the Duckworth-Lewis method was launched in 2014, based on information from 700 ODIs and 428 T20 Internationals. The ICC has said that it is again confirmed that the new version of the Duckworth Lewis system is favorable for all formats. The World Cup has less than a year left: The ICC has not made any major changes in the current game conditions.

This is the third version of DLS, which was first introduced in 2014, which has been given a new look for the second time. Earlier DLS was known as DL. An existing analysis means that the team has to accelerate the pace of making their runs for a long time. Also, the average in ODIs will also be increased, the batting team has to accelerate the pace of making runs in the last over of the innings.

Before bringing this new format, it has been kept in focus on the ODIs (20 overs) and T20I. It also focuses on different scoring patterns of male and female cricket. Research has shown that the scoring rate is different in both the circumstances (male and female cricket), while the conditions for the wickets are almost the same. Therefore, it was decided that the same format of DLS will be implemented in both places.

ICC has made many more changes

The biggest institution of cricket operations has included new crimes in current crimes of the Code of Conduct of the players and the support staff, and have changed the level of penalties in some current crimes. In these new crimes, the level two, three involves attempting to take unfair advantage bytampering of the ball. Level 3 has increased the maximum punishment for the three offenses from eight suspension points to 12 suspension points (equivalent to six Test matches or 12 ODIs). All these changes will take effect from September 30. On this day, the first ODI match between South Africa and Zimbabwe in Kimberley will be played.
