 Duckworth Lewis could get a revamp

London: The Duckworth-Lewis method for the fairest possible result in rain-marred cricket matches will be reviewed for the Twenty20 format after its appropriateness was questioned in the quickest version of the game.

"Certainly, people have suggested that we need to look very carefully and see whether in fact the numbers in our formula are totally appropriate for the T20 game," admitted Lewis, the inventor of the system with his statistician partner Frank Duckworth.

Duckworth said the duo would work on the method after collecting more data from the T20 World Cup.

"We will be reviewing the application of the Duckworth-Lewis method to Twenty20 during the summer when this competition is over," he was quoted as saying by 'The Guradian'.
