Abstract [en]

Duckworth-Lewis (DL) method is used in the One Day International (ODI) cricketmatches when the matches are interrupted. However, all information we have about thismethod is the Duckworth-Lewis calculator, which leads us to suspect the fairness of it.This thesis quantified the effect of the DL method on the result of the matches, whichmeans if teams have the same winning chance under DL method or not. The effect oflikely influential factors, including the use of DL method, on the winning odds areestimated by using the Generalized Linear Mixed Model. The results indicates that theDL method does not have any significant effect on the winning odds, nor does the DLmethod change the effects of other factors. The results also confirm that homeadvantage exists and that winning the coin toss does not affect the outcome of match.
