That depends on what method of resolution the league or competition has designated for this case. If they use net run rate, for example, then team 1 has 7.2/over and team 2 has 3.9/over, so team 1 wins. If they use Duckworth-Lewis, then the par score for team 2 would be 56, so team 1 wins. (There are several online resources to calculate D/L; results may vary.) There are other methods as well.

All tournaments organised under ICC's standards have to use the D/L method. – hims056 May 26 '14 at 4:24
