The Duckworth Lewis method has become an integral part of cricket in the recent years and has played a pivotal role in deciding crucial matches that would have otherwise been abandoned. A Redditor recently posted a graph depicting the countries that have relied the most on the method for results.

The Duckworth Lewis method has become a crucial part of cricket with decisions of a toss during a rain forecast relying on the method. The Indian women's team could have easily made history if rain gods had blessed Lords yesterday with the Women in Blue well ahead of the par score before the end of their innings. Pakistan, the winner of the Champions Trophy were in luck against South Africa when rains interrupted play during the group stage match between the two which eventually resulted in Pakistan being declared as the winners even though the Proteas were in a commanding position in the match.

According to the graph posted by a Reddit user named planetof, England has been the country where rain gods have continued to interrupt play and D/L method has been of use the most and it isn't a surprise as it was pretty evident during the Champions Trophy and the ICC Women's World Cup where a number of matches were abandoned due to rains. England is followed by West Indies, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Bangladesh, Pakistan, and India with Australia nowhere in the picture.

West Indies Queen's Park Oval has been the stadium where a total of 7 matches, which is the maximum number amongst all the stadiums, have been decided by D/L method followed by Pallekele International Stadium, Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium, Shere Bangla in Bangladesh and Eden Park in New Zealand at six matches each.
