Former Indian opener Virender Sehwag tickled everyone on social media with his tweet about the confusing Duckworth Lewis Method. India played New Zealand in the semifinal of the World Cup, but the game was washed out on 9th and has to be resumed on 10th, which was the reserve day.
The D/L method is used to calculate target scores for rain-affected limited over matches. Taking advantage of the situation, Sehwag posted a quirky tweet which literally stood out because it was a plea from all us employees to our bosses.
“Will it be advantage employees if Salary is given by Duckworth Lewis in rainy months. If baarish mein bhi employee is coming to the office. What do HR log think?” Sehwag tweeted. His tweet was instantly retweeted and liked by various users, on twitter. Sehwag is not only a well-renowned batsman, but he is also a very cheeky commentator as well.

Anyone who watches the match in Hindi commentary will know how funny remarks Sehwag makes sometimes.
Rain stopped play in the first semi-final at the Old Trafford on Tuesday with the Kiwi scoreboard reading 211/5 after 46.1 overs. Resuming on 211/5 on Wednesday, New Zealand finished on 239/8 in their 50 overs.

Jasprit Bumrah had spoken about the wickets slowing down as the 2019 World Cup moved towards the business end and it was evident during the first semi-final at the Old Trafford as the Indian bowlers made full use of the conditions after Kiwi skipper Kane Williamson won the toss and decided to bat first.

India failed to chase down the target, in the end falling short by just 18 runs and have now been eliminated from the World Cup. Meanwhile, New Zealand will play the winner of the second semifinal between Australia and England in the final of World Cup, at Lords on 14th of July.
