New Delhi [India], July 9 (ANI): India's World Cup semi-final match against New Zealand at Old Trafford on Tuesday got interrupted due to rain and the DLS method is likely to play a role in the match. However, the DLS figures which came out got every Indian fan perplexed and some even asked the International Cricket Council (ICC) to scrap the method.

"Retweet If You Feel @ICC Should Scrap This Age Old DLS Method & Bring Some New Method... #INDvNZ," a user tweeted.

"Person who invented this DLS method in cricket was definitely a failure in mathematics...Why India has to chase 148 in 20 overs...If this scenario occurs today??," another user tweeted.

Another user wrote: "Very nice! They are now 211 in 276 balls (46.1 overs) In same overs (46 overs) DLS target becomes 237 Nice Dumb Lol method."
