of play.

This method is a mathematical formulation designed to calculate the target score (runs needed to win) for the team batting second in a limited-overs cricket match interrupted by weather or other

five wickets.

On calculating the DLS, the revised winning score required was 71 runs, giving the Knights the win.

Batting first the Gladiators had scored 121 runs in 20 overs with Samir Patel being the top-scorer with 48, and Weylin Kapp 21, Marlon Robinson 11 with Lenroy Whorms 9, and Muhammad Jamal contributing 12.
