Cape Town - Proteas coach Russell Domingo has questioned the legitimacy of the Duckworth-Lewis method after their rain-affected Cricket World Cup semi-final loss to New Zealand in Auckland on Tuesday.
As it happened: NZ v SA
The Proteas were going strong at 216/5 after 38 overs before rain intervened at Eden Park.
When play resumed, the match was reduced to 43 overs per overs, with South Africa finishing on 281/5.
According to the Duckworth-Lewis method, New Zealand's target was adjusted to 298 in 43 overs, but the South African coach believes more should have been added to the target.
"Duckworth-Lewis has always favoured the team batting first, but we were surprised and disappointed that only 16 runs were added to our total," Domingo told Netwerk24.
"When we played Pakistan (in a rain-affected group game) a few weeks ago, 10 runs were added to their total, even though they were bowled out with a few overs still remaining.
"I don't really understand how we only got 6 more runs than them. It's a complicated system and we were hoping at least 25 runs would have been added to our total."
