Duckworth Lewis bug
#1
My son was playing a World Championship match against Bangladesh which had two rain delays (while he was batting) and the match was reduced to 40 overs. England finished with 269-6 in their 40.

Bangladesh’s target was... 2 off 40 overs. Unsurprisingly they won by 10 wickets, and son was a bit annoyed.

While I liked the realism of actually having a rain delay, think the DL calculation needs some work...

Here I am about to pull out my DL calculator to see if maybe you just calculated it wrong, then I read the next paragraph hahaha
