Just doesnt sit well in sport.
Just thinking about it
A fairer system maybe to give (in this case) a team batting 1st 24 overs and the team batting 2nd 20 overs.
The overs would be unbalanced which isnt ideal but it would mean teams chased the same targets and the team batting first wouldnt be penalized for thinking they were getting 50 overs.
What happens if the team batting second has their chase further interrupted by rain then? Just lop another couple of overs off?
