Good News for Pakistan if Match Not Resume Again

In the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023, New Zealand faced Pakistan in a crucial group stage match. Pakistan won the toss and chose to field, allowing New Zealand to score a formidable 401-6. The target set by New Zealand for Pakistan stands at 402, making this match pivotal for both teams as they strive to secure a spot in the semifinals.

In second innings, the Pakistani opener’s performance was nothing short of spectacular, as Fakhar Zaman exhibited aggressive yet controlled batting, consistently finding gaps and punishing the New Zealand bowlers.

But Pakistan’s batting faced significant delays due to rainfall. Rain interruptions are a common occurrence in cricket, and they can disrupt the flow of the game.

Rain once again interrupted the game, the cricket field was once again enveloped in covers, bringing a temporary halt to the game. At this moment, Pakistan held a lead of 21 runs over the DLS par score. The DLS method is employed to adjust targets in rain-affected matches, ensuring fairness. Pakistan’s advantage, exceeding the par score, indicates that they were ahead of the hypothetical target they needed to reach at this stage of the game to potentially secure a victory should the match be further affected by rain. This lead positions them favorably, increasing their chances of winning the match if play resumes, and it bodes well for their performance in the rain-affected conditions.
