DWTA Prince. Unless DL has undergone significant change in the last year with respect to it's core concept, I don't think runs already scored by the chasing team are figured into determining the REVISED TARGET. In other words West indies could have well been 0-0 after 2.2 overs yesterday and they still would have to chase 60 in 6 overs (of course obviously harder task than yesterday's but nothing to do with DL) However had they lost 2 wickets, they'd be chasing 72 afaic.
Would love to be proved wrong, particularly with a 'For Dummies' example.
