The joys of Duckworth-Louis

At first sight, the scorecard is hard to believe. Scotland made 152 in 30 overs, and yet the target for the Windies was a “revised” 165.

Turns out it’s due to the Duckworth Louis system, as the match suffered from two rain delays and was twice reduced in the first innings, first to 42 overs, then to 30. It does make sense, though – if a team knows there are only 30 overs to bat, they’ll be more aggressive.

As it turns out, the Windies just about survived.
