STATEMENT - WHY WAYNE'S PROPOSAL IS GOING TO BEì
SUPPORTED BY THE UNITED CRICKET BOARD OF SA
00.01.29 RECEIVE REGULAR PROPOSALS ABOUT ANì
APPROPRIATE FORMULA FOR TARGET SCORES IN RAINì
AFFECTED MATCHES
00.01.58 GENERAL CONSENSUS IT'S PROBABLYì
IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND THE ABSOLUTE FORMULA
00.03.35 ...and it's now history...that for thisì
coming season, certainly for the domestic Benson &ì
Hedges series matches, we will adopt Wayne'sì
proposed formula...
00.04.26 ...I will be very surprised in fact if itì
will not be used for the World Cup.
00.05.04 EVERYBODY CAN UNDERSTAND THE FORMULA IT'Sì
IMMENENTLY FAIR THE FORMULA WILL HELP ENORMOUSLYì
COACHES & CAPTAINS WHO ARE BATTING SECOND WHENì
THERE'S BAD WEATHER AROUND
00.05.26 ...as you go out to bat in the 2ndì
Innings you can at that point determine exactly ifì
30 overs are played & you come off what the targetì
will be to win that match
00.05.42 ...the system recognize the fact that theì
side with a relative reduction in overs is capableì
of scoring much faster that the side with moreì
overs...
00.09.16 CUTAWAYS PRESS
00.09.30 WAYNE EXPLAINING I first looked at whyì
the Run-rate method doesn't work & if a teamì
scores 250 overs that's a run-rate of 4...it's aì
lot easier to score 4 runs per over for 25 oversì
than it is for 50 overs 'cause you don't have asì
high a risk of losing wickets & being all out...
00.09.54 I realised that as the game gets shorterì
the run-rate must be increased. What is thisì
relationship between overs & the run-rate? STUDIEDì
100S OF GAMES IN ENGLAND
00.10.54 EXPLAINING THE GRAPH
00.11.39 EXPLAINS THE FORMULA ...if a team has 30ì
overs in which to bat you take the average for 30ì
overs and you divide that by the average of 50ì
overs and you times that by what the firts teamì
made...and that lowers the run-rate to aì
satisfactory manner...
00.13.07 COACH EXPLAINING
00.13.38 ...this does really make it very veryì
simple. A schoolboy coach, that's a teacher, but aì
schoolboy can do it; a schoolboy has done it!ì
