Cricket cock-up
« on: March 20, 2009, 10:13:13 PM »
The first one-day international between the West Indies and England has just ended in a bit of a farce.

Windies needed 27 runs to win from 22 balls, but were offered the chance to end the game by the umpires because of the fading light.
Their management called them off thinking they had won under the Duckworth/Lewis method, but had miscalculated, leaving England the actual winners by one run  :D

And - if anyone wants an explanation of the D/L method, don't ask me please  ;D
The pic is Tytti Porkka of Finland - I actually took it myself, but have lost all my pics and have no more :(
