Tony Lewis, who co-developed the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern system utilised in cricket, has died, the ICC confirmed on Thursday. Lewis passed away at the age of 78. He developed the original Duckworth-Lewis method alongside fellow statistician Frank Duckworth. The ICC has used the formula – which calculates the target score for a team batting second in an interrupted limited-overs match – since 1999.
