D/L method recalculation? |

My understanding is that the combinations and permuations of the D/L method have been based on the history of one day cricket up until the point it was introduced. Does anyone know if the D/L method is recalculated to reflect the more modern game? Given the fact we have seen the number of 300+ scores increase in say the last 4-5 years at an exponetial rate. |
