In ODI cricket, minimum 20 overs to be bowled to use Duckworth–Lewis rule. But my question is even if chasing team scored the D/L 20 over par score target in just 10 or 15 overs, will it be mandatory to bat full 20 overs?
If team A batting first, scored 150 runs in 30 overs & all out (150/10 - 30 overs) Target is 151 in 50 overs.
Team B batting second, scores 120 runs in 12 overs & lost 2 wickets. (120/2 - 12 overs) Rain interrupts now. As per D/L method, revised D/L target would be 80 runs in 20 overs.
But play couldn't resume as rain continues till the end. But team B is well ahead of D/L par score. but didn't complete the 20 overs. Now what will be the result?
Will team B be declared the winner or the match is abandoned due to rain?
