Online Scoring Workshop
May 20 @ 7:00 pm until 9:00 pm
Duckworth Lewis Calculator within the Play Cricket Scorer App
Sue Drinkwater, ECBACO, National Scorer Officer, will be demonstrating how to use the DL Calculator within the Play Cricket Scorer App, the scoring software which can be run on tablets and smartphones.
DL stands for Duckworth Lewis, a method of calculating a new target score for a team batting second in a limited overs cricket match that has been shortened, usually owing to weather, but possibly for some other reason. The DL method is available in two formats, DL Standard and DLS Professional. The Professional method has an ‘S’ in its name to represent Professor Stern who is responsible for the software used to perform DLS Professional Calculations. The two methods are not interchangeable, as they produce different target scores in the same scenarios.
The Play Cricket Scorer app has a DL Standard Calculator embedded in it, which is the version being demonstrated in the session on RunsWktsOvers. The DL Calculator is available as a standalone function and as an accessible feature while scoring.
The Play Cricket Scorer app is available to download free of charge on both iOS and Android devices (tablets and smartphones). If you want to follow the demonstration at home, please visit the Apple App Store or Google Play Store and download the Play Cricket Scorer app to your smart device, then join in live on YouTube on Wednesday 20th May.
