Hyderabad: Sunrisers Hyderabad coach Tom Moody has expressed unhappiness at the way the target for Royal Challengers Bangalore was revised under D/L method in their rain-interrupted IPL match and said that the system “needs to be looked at”.
After a delayed start due to rain, SRH scored 135-3 in 11 overs. But the target for RCB was revised to 81 from six overs after their run chase was delayed by rain.
“We had to play regardless of the weather. Because, one point made no difference to us and still disillusioned how D/L method comes up with the numbers that they come up with. When you score a total in 11 overs, you face three powerplay overs, then you have a rain interruption and you have to defend with six overs with two powerplay overs,” Moody said.
