The South Yorkshire Cricket League may look at introducing the Duckworth-Lewis method of run target calculation into their cup matches in future.

This follows the end to their ‘Blue Riband’ Whitworth Cup Final on Sunday which saw hold-ups due to rain and the game ended seven overs from the finish because of bad light.

Whitley Hall beat Hallam on faster scoring rate with the game still evenly poised but the League look set to consider the prospect of introducing the D/L for cup games next season.

The League are also expected to start their finals earlier, Sunday’s game, due to the interruptions, was called off at almost 9pm.
