    While D/L isn't that great, it's better than the other alternatives.

    Are you sure you were definitely playing under duckworth-lewis? depending on what grade it is, some just have a sliding scale in the back of the rule book.

    V. Jayadevan came up with an alternative to the Duckworth Lewis method including "scoring range" as an additional parameter [0]. It fares at least as good as D/L method in all situations and fares better than D/L in certain tricky situations [1]. Cricinfo did a nice comparison between the two.
