Jayadevan’s formula awaits ICC clearanceComputing the revised target score in interrupted limited-overs cricket matches is a complex activity. Now, a civil engineer from Kerala might have a big say in it.Since 1998, a method formulated by the statistician-mathematician duo of Frank Duckworth and Tony Lewis has been in use, but the D/L has run into controversies as it often arrives at illogical numbers.V. Jayadevan, 38, an assistant director at the Kerala Engineering Research Institute, Thrissur, claims his formula is superior to the D/L method.Many seem to agree, Sunil Gavaskar for one. He invited Jayadevan to present it before the BCCI, which forwarded it to the International Cricket Council. The ICC is expected to take it up for discussion after the 2003 World Cup.Wisden (Asia) magazine published details of Jayadevan’s computation and felt it was better than the D/L method. The journal Current Science also featured Jayadevan’s method in a recent issue.Is he overawed by the fact that his work could be accepted by the ICC? “Slightly. But the Boer method which preceded D/L was developed by a South African schoolboy,” he says easily.
