Calculation of Revised Target for Teams Batting Second:- If overs are lost during the innings of the team batting second a revised target score needs to be calculated. Use the rain calculator on the web site or manually calculate the revised target as follows.
First calculate the number of overs available to the team batting second at the end of the first innings.
This is 40 - the number of overs lost during the first innings. Second calculate an original target by adding 1 to the score of the team batting first.
Third divide the result of the second calculation by the First calculation.
This gives a target run rate per over. The revised target is calculated by multipling this run rate by the number of overs lost during the second innings and deducting that from the original target.
